NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball says it is moving ahead with plans to expand instant replay for umpires’ calls next year.

MLB Executive Vice President Joe Torre says “we’re pretty confident we’ll have it in place for 2014.”

Video review has been in place for home run calls since August 2008. Commissioner Bud Selig initially wanted to add trap plays and fair/foul calls down the lines for 2013, but change was put off while more radical options were examined.

Speaking to the Baseball Writers’ Association of America on Tuesday, Torre said “we’re still in the tweaking stages” and “we’re not limiting ourselves.”

An agreement would be needed with the unions and players and umpires.
