Umpires, MLB sign agreement on instant replay

NEW YORK (AP) - Baseball umpires and management signed an agreement Wednesday that will allow the sport to start using instant replay to help determine calls on the field.

The deal was signed by lawyers for the commissioner's office and the World Umpires Association one day after a WUA spokesman went public with complaints over negotiations. After haggling over final details, the sides exchanged proposals Tuesday night.
