SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. — Managers at this month's Little League World Series will be able to challenge certain calls under a revised instant replay system.
The 2-year-old system also will be expanded to include more plays, including force outs, tags on base paths, missed bases and hit batters.
Little League announced the latest guidelines Monday. Umpires will still have the option to call for a replay, though managers will now be allowed to challenge calls or request a replay if umpires don't ask for one.
Managers would be limited to one unsuccessful replay challenge in the first six innings, and one unsuccessful challenge in extra innings.
The World Series starts Aug. 20.
