First Official Use of Instant Replay Result in Upheld Call in Cubs vs. Pirates Game


The MLB’s Opening Day was on Monday and the much anticipated arrival of the expansion of instant replay was a success. The first official upheld call occurred in the 5th inning of the Pirates vs. Cubs game when Jeff Samardzija was called out at first place on a double play. New Cubs Manager Rick Renteria challenged the call, and Samardzija was confirmed out in about a minute and 45 seconds.

This is great for baseball, especially if it can be utilized in a timely manner.
