At Coors Field, two doors down from the office of Rockies manager Walt Weiss, there's a dark and buzzing video room that looks like a miniature version of the ROC in New York. This is where Rockies video coordinator Brian Jones works. His job during games last season was to log every pitch into a database.
"Some plays are more conclusive than others," Weiss said. "The tough one is the one that is inconclusive, that you have to figure out. But you have a chance to make sure those calls are right. I like it. I'm happy with how it works."
"I tell you what, once a close play happens, I don't know whether it's adrenaline, but it kicks in," Jones said. "It can happen at any time. You have to Gucci Dionysus Turquoise
"So far, we've been pretty aggressive," Jones said. "The chance for multiple challenges in a game are pretty slim. You don't want to sit there with a challenge in your pocket if you think you could have had one overturned."
Weiss challenged the call, the umpires gathered near third base to talk to officials in New York, and after 2 minutes and 14 seconds one second quicker than MLB's average so far the out was reversed. Blackmon was called safe in the first overturned call in Coors Field Gucci Clutch Black
be paying attention and locked in to the action."
Jones called down to the Rockies' dugout, where a militarylike phone screamed with a siren. Jones told bench coach Tom Runnels what he saw, and Runnels gave Weiss a Crossbody Gucci thumbs up from the bench.
Flash back to Oct. 1, 2007. Matt Holliday lumbers home and slides chin first past San Diego Padres catcher Michael Barrett. Plate umpire Tim McClelland calls Holliday safe, Coors Field flips its lid, and the Rockies win a one game playoff 9 8 in the 13th inning.
Last Sunday, the Rockies' Charlie Blackmon chopped a grounder to first base and slid arms first. Umpire Mike Michlinski called Blackmon out. Then the Rockies' replay team kicked in. Jones rushed to review the tape he can do it in two to 20 seconds while Weiss walked onto the field.
If there's a chance the replay might go the Rockies' way, "I'm going to challenge it 100 percent of the time no matter how important the play is," Weiss said.
league baseball's instant replay system is working out
in the sky.
Video has erased the game's gray area. After nearly 140 years, the accepted axiom that "a tie goes to the runner" is dead. If it looks too close to call, you're not looking close enough.
Major League Baseball now has broad use of instant replay. And for the first time in baseball history, umpires have HD hindsight.
His job this season is to be the Rockies' eyes Gucci Clutch Bag
MLB built a video review system that might make the National Security Agency jealous. Baseball's replay operations center in New York, a nearly 1,000 square foot room, cost about $30 million. The room hums so heavy with electricity, it requires its own cooling system. The room includes a bank of 36 high definition monitors feeding 12 to 15 angles of video from every major league ballpark in real time.
MLB's replay rules give each team one challenge to start a game. If a manager objects to a call and is wrong, he can't challenge again. If the challenge works, he gets one more.
In the first 14 days of the season, baseball's new replay system led to 21 overturned calls from 64 challenges in 141 games. That's one caught mistake every 6.7 games.
In other words, missed calls are relatively rare. But if the umpires are that good, did baseball even need replay?
In nearly seven years since that memorable game, your home TV turned high definition. If there were two or three angles on Holliday's slide for the TBS telecast in 2007, there are multitudes more now.
Every telecast feeds 12 to 15 camera angles to the ROC in New York, split between the home and away teams' TV truck feeds. Those videos also go to each team to help them decide when to challenge calls.
But wait. San Diego manager Bud Black just walked slowly onto the field, ready to challenge the call. Does the decision stand? Do the Rockies win?
