BaseballCHICAGO (Chicago Tribune) — Major League Baseball is prepared to greatly increase its use of instant replay, with a proposal advancing that would give each manager three challenges per game if approved.

Owners attending quarterly meetings in Cooperstown, N.Y,, were briefed on the proposal put together advanced by a committee including Joe Torre, John Schuerholz and Tony La Russa, which would be placed into effect in 2014.

Almost all calls except the strike zone would be subject to review if MLB can gain approval of the players union and umpires union prior to a vote by owners in November.
