Last summer, the NCAA baseball rules committee approved the use of instant replay at the College World Series for disputable home run calls. If needed, this will be the first time instant replay has been used in an NCAA baseball game. The umps will use replay at their discretion. Coaches can only call for an on field conference.
Other CWS notes: Officials expect the 8 millionth fan in the tournament’s history to attend Sunday’s 4 p.m. game. A celebration and ceremony is planned for the event. The CWS passed seven million fans in 2009.
