ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Major League Baseball owners have voted to move ahead with a vast expansion on instant replay next season.

Owners approved funding the replay expansion when they met Thursday and plan to approve the exact rules in January following the completion of negotiations with the unions for umpires and players.

Rob Manfred, MLB’s chief operating officer, said present and former umpires likely would make the decisions on contested calls after reviewing video in New York.

A manager will be given a maximum of two challenges per game and a successful challenge would not count against his limit. If a manager is out of challenges, umpires likely would be able to call for a review on their own.
