An NCAA committee has agreed to let the West Coast Conference experiment with instant replay during its conference baseball tournament in 2014.

The decision by the NCAA's Baseball Rules Committee now goes to the Playing Rules Oversight Panel for final approval. The panel is set to meet via conference call on Aug. 27, according to the NCAA.

Instant replay is used on a limited basis at the College World Series for certain types of plays, like deciding if a foul ball was actually fair. Major League Baseball said Thursday that it plans to expand its video review process next season.

The NCAA says the Baseball Rules Committee agreed with the WCC proposal because it uses the same procedure and protocol as the College World Series.
