BIRMINGHAM, Al. - The Southeastern Conference will use experimental instant replay rules during its conference baseball tournament in May.

The NCAA Baseball Rules Committee approved the SEC's request to use replay Wednesday. Two other conferences - the West Coast Conference and the Atlantic Coast Conference - already gained approval to use replay at their tournaments.

The replay can be used for four situations:

-Deciding if an apparent home run is fair or foul.

-Deciding whether a batted ball is a home run or ground-rule double.

-Spectator interference plays involving home run balls.

-Deciding if a batted ball is fair or foul.

The same system was used at the College World Series in 2012 and 2013, though there were no reviews either year.
