Just one month after the NCAA Baseball Rules Committee announced that they will implement a new flat-seamed ball for the 2014 College World Series, they continue to tinker and will allow the Atlantic Coast Conference to use an experimental instant replay rule during its baseball conference tournament in 2014.

In 2012, the committee added to the instant replay rule for the 2013 season. Originally, the experimental rule was to be used only in games that took place in the College World Series in Omaha, Neb. The committee permitted experimental instant replay reviews of the following:

• Deciding if an apparent home run is fair or foul.
• Deciding whether a batted ball left the playing field for a home run or a ground-rule double.
• Spectator-interference plays (only on plays involving home run balls).

Umpires are now allowed to conference on several specific types of plays. 

The experimental instant replay rules will also be used by the West Coast Conference in their 2014 tournament.
