VIDEO: MLB Instant Replay works quickly and efficiently for first overturned call 96

I will admit I am a skeptic about instant replay in baseball.  I’m worried about too many of them, them taking too long, and in general, I feel like umps are more right than wrong.  And if they don’t, that’s part of the game.  So far, so good for Major League Baseball.  While the first replay today upheld the umpires call, Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez took a missed call, made the protest, and the umps got it right.  Check how it unfolds in a couple of minutes (via MLB.com):

The more complicated calls will come when a trap is overruled an out (and returning baserunners) or an out is ruled safe (and figuring out where other runners might have ended up).  But we’ll take our victories now!
