From NBC Sports:
“Little League Baseball will use instant replay at this year’s World Series to review questionable home runs and other close plays at the outfield fence, beating the major leagues in instituting a system to review some disputed calls.”
So for someone who has been to two* World Series tournaments in Williamsport* I’m not sure this is a great development. Doesn't instant replay detract from the youth sport element of the games? Isn't one of the tenants of Little League dealing with bad calls/adversity in a healthy way--not make sure we get the call "right." Or has the *Little League World Series* already become a worldwide media event that has more in common with the *Super Bowl *than the sandlot game down the street?
Join the discussion. Would love to hear what you other youth baseball folks think?
