Tech Glitch Prevents Replay in Yanks-Phils Game

Tech Glitch Prevents Replay in Yanks-Phils Game

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg discovered he didn’t have the power to make an instant replay challenge Thursday.

Just not enough juice at Bright House Field, actually.

On the first day Major League Baseball’s expanded replay system had a tryout at Philadelphia’s spring training home, a power outage got in the way of the only contested call.

John Mayberry Jr. was thrown out at third base in the seventh inning trying to stretch a double. Sandberg wanted to challenge the ruling, but when third-base umpire Vic Carapazza was ready to go to replay, there were no television feeds available because of a momentary power outage at the ballpark.

“The power went out the pitch before,” Sandberg said. “(Carapazza) was giving me an inkling that he missed it. He had no hesitation about checking it out. Get over there, and nobody has anything. He showed a little frustration with that.”
