NPB Director of Umpires calling for video replay standard

The Japan Professional Baseball Player Association (JPBPA) met with the NPB and the 12 teams of the NPB to discuss the current pension system and the possibility of implementing a new system once the current one expires in 3/2012.


The NPB's director of Umpires, Osamu Ino, is asking that all 12 teams adopt one standard video replay system.  As is, each stadium has their own system, making it difficult for umpires to quickly check on replay footage without having to worry about potential problems.

Video replay has already been used three times this year.
