Umpires Used Replay to Determine the Count in the 9th Inning of a Yankees - Astros Game

Major League Baseball’s billion dollar replay control center in New York is getting a good workout to start the 2014 MLB season. During Thursday’s hotly contested Yankees – Astros game, umpires went to review the count because between the four of them they didn’t know what the count was on the 4th pitch of Yangervis Solarte’s at bat. It was 3-1. Only a short conference on the mound, two sets of Turtle Beach gamer headphones and a couple guys sitting in baseball’s version of the NASA control center were required to figure it out. The human element at its best.
