CHICAGO — There apparently will be no expansion of instant replay in baseball in the near future.

Jimmy Lee Solomon, MLB’s executive vice president of baseball operations, said Tuesday there was no discussion to expand the use of replay in the regular season or postseason at a meeting of the game’s general managers.

The call for more extensive use of replay arose following several missed calls by umpires during the recent postseason.

“If the group had any real thoughts on instant replay in regards to more than what we have,” Solomon said, “they probably would have discussed it as this meeting.”

It took a proposal by general managers for the MLB to institute instant replay for boundary calls and fair and foul home run calls late in the 2008 season. Several general managers are in favor of extending replay, but apparently don’t want to butt heads with Commissioner Bud Selig.
