The NPB umpires met again for a meeting today and decided that umpires will turn to video replay during any questionable home runs.  This means they won't waste time arguing about whether or not a a call should be reviewed.  The umps also agreed on asking all 12 NPB teams to use on standardized video replay system.

The umps also continued to go exchange ideas and issues regarding the merging of the Central and Pacific League umpire offices.
