DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Baseball history yesterday in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Brewers hosting the Atlanta Braves. Bottom of the sixth inning, lead-off batter Ryan Braun gets his bat on a Julio Teheran pitch.
(SOUNDBITE OF A PITCH)
UNIDENTIFIED MAN: Braun, a slow roller. There's Johnson, top hop.
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Here's the play-by-play from MLB.com.
UNIDENTIFIED MAN: Had trouble getting it out of the glove and Braun beat it.
(SOUNDBITE OF CHEERING)
GREENE: Your basic infield hit. But then Braves' manager Fredi Gonzalez challenges that safe call. And listen now - history being made
(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC AND A CROWD)
GREENE: That is the dramatic sound of three umpires studying a replay.
INSKEEP: Drama, that's the word. And when they're done, Braun is out - not safe. It's the first successful challenge of an umpire's call on an infield play using video.
GREENE: The replay heard round the world. Yesterday in the Major Leagues, there were four challenges of umpire calls. Two were reversed.
