MLBPAThe Major League Baseball Players Association announced today it has reached an agreement with the Clubs to implement instant replay with respect to home run calls for the duration of 2008, including the playoffs and the World Series. After the World Series, the MLBPA may request further bargaining over instant replay for 2009 and beyond by notice to the Commissioner's Office by December 10. If further bargaining is not requested, this agreement will remain in effect for the balance of the current Basic Agreement, through the 2011 season.

MLBPA Executive Director, Donald M. Fehr, stated, “We are pleased that we were able to reach this agreement. Following the World Series, the players will review the matter, and then determine what course to take for the future. While the use of instant replay is an experiment, we hope that over the balance of this season it will prove to be a success."

Sources are saying that instant replay will be in place by Thursday.
