For the first time in history, Major League Baseball will include replay outside of home run calls and the league is well prepared to handle the influx of calls they’ll be getting.

At least, they seem that way.

This season managers will be given the opportunity to challenge a handful of on-field rulings which will then be ruled upon by a set of official Major League Baseball umpires back in the New York based command center.

Below is what it looks like.

The ‘replay center’ obviously don’t compare to the network operations center, but it doesn’t need to considering a handful of monitors/screens and television angles are all that will be needed.

Regardless, it’s still a pretty impressive set up which now has me trying to figure out how many televisions I can hook up to my entertainment center.

I thought I was living the high-life watching three games at once. Thanks a lot, MLB. Thanks a whole hell of a lot.
