Those who doubted the value of Nippon Professional Baseball's video review system a year ago have officially left the building.

On Tuesday, NPB announced a few tweaks to a system that got some negative press last year, but was — on the whole — considered a success.

"We're better off with it than we were without it," Tokyo Yakult Swallows manager Junji Ogawa said after NPB's 12 managers learned they would have wider scope for requesting reviews in 2019, but that those who argued the subsequent rulings would be ejected.
