NCAA formally approved video replay yesterday

From Justin’s World of Softball:

“On Thursday, the NCAA’s Playing Rules Oversight Panel officially ratified the use of video replay review in college softball.

“Under the approved rule, coaches will be allowed two review challenges and the umpiring crew chief can initiate a review beginning in the sixth inning of a game.

“Review is not mandatory and is not required to be used; schools, conferences, and tournaments will have the option to implement replay review. No conference has yet implemented and all-or-nothing approach to replay review, leaving open the possibility, at present, that some schools may have the option of replay review at the same time that other schools in the same conference do not.

“The ACC, Sun Belt, and SEC all used instant replay in their conference tournaments this season, operating in very similar fashion to this proposed permanent rule change. When the rule was positively referred out of the Softball Rules Committee, an NCAA release noted then that, “committee members have received positive feedback about the experimental rule”.
