FORT MYERS, Fla. ó The first review under Major League Baseballís expanded replay system has taken place and after a further look that took 21/2 minutes, the call stood.
Toronto manager John Gibbons used his challenge to ask umpires to review a play in the sixth inning of Mondayís game against Minnesota.
Chris Rahl of the Twins was called safe at first base when shortstop Munenori Kawasakiís throw pulled Jared Goedert off the bag.
The umpires gathered in front of the first base dugout while the replay booth in New York looked at the play. After a wait of 2 minutes, 34 seconds, first base umpire Fieldin Culbreth spread his hands in the safe sign.
MLB has expanded replay this year beyond potential home runs and boundary calls. This season, most every play except for balls-and-strikes is subject to a manager challenging the ruling.
