DALLAS (CBS SPORTS) – Major League Baseball will test two new, “advanced” replay system during games starting next week in New York, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports is reporting.

If the systems prove valuable and accurate, an “overhaul” of the replay system prior to next season is possible, Passan reports.

The systems are radar- and camera-based, such as those used in tennis for the boundary calls.

Citi Field and Yankee Stadium will be the sites where MLB does the testing, but definitely take note that the system won’t be used to officially replay calls during the games.

The upcoming games in those stadiums will still take place under current MLB rules, it’s just that the advanced replay system will be tested by MLB officials during the games.
