NEW YORK -- Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig says the sports new replay system is working well despite a few problems during its first two weeks. While baseball began video review late in the 2008 season, it was limited to potential home runs and boundary calls. The new system that began March 30 vastly expands the types of plays that managers and umpires can ask to be reviewed at a replay centre in New York. Calls by umpires on the field have been confirmed in 33 of 89 challenges through Monday and overturned in 30. For 25 others, calls stood because of a lack of "clear and convincing" evidence. In one instance, umpires asked for a video review to check the balls-strike count. Selig called the rollout "remarkable" but wouldnt say whether MLB would make any adjustments during this initial season. "Weve had really very little controversy overall," Selig said Tuesday at the MLB Diversity Business Summit. "Everything in life will have a little glitch here and there where you do something new. And are our guys on top of it? You bet. But Im saying to you again, youll hear about the one or two controversies, but look at all the calls that have been overturned." Umpires review challenged calls in a room filled with computers, screens and technicians at the offices of Major League Baseball Advanced Media. "Technology takes a while to work," MLBAM chief executive officer Bob Bowman said. "I dont know if you ever bought a new car. You dont know how all that stuff works right away. And if you ever get a new phone, it takes you awhile to learn it. Were under 30 days old, and I know weve arrived because ESPN is already criticizing us. And it must be great to be perfect the way ESPN is." ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz declined comment. Boston manager John Farrell was ejected after a call was overturned during Sundays game against the Yankees, which gave New York an additional run in a game it went on to win 3-2. Francisco Cervelli originally was called out at first for an inning-ending double play, but he was ruled safe on the review -- allowing Brian McCann to score from first. A day earlier, MLB admitted it incorrectly failed to overturn a call that was in favour of the Yankees and said it was because the replay room in New York did not immediately have access to some of the camera angles from broadcasts that showed Boston shortstop Xander Bogaerts tagged Dean Anna while the runners right foot briefly came off second base. "I dont expect any system to be perfect. So its no different than before instant replay," Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner said. "Youre going to get calls that go your way, and youre probably going to get some that dont. And no system is perfect, but its a vast improvement over what we had." Chicago Cubs owner Tom Ricketts had a more parochial -- and playful -- view. "Were two and two in challenges, so its clear to us the replay system only works about half the time," he said.
