MLB umps may voice decisions

NEW YORK (AP) — Big league players, managers and fans might be hearing a lot more from umpires this season.

Replay review decisions could be announced at the ballpark by umps wearing microphones, as Major League Baseball and the umpires are actively discussing the possibility.

If the technical aspects can be worked out and the umps are comfortable with the concept, they could be mic’d up sometime this year. It’s uncertain whether this could be in place by opening day on March 26.
