After Further Review: First Challenges Made Under New MLB Replay System
Published March 4, 2014
STILL UNDER REVIEW: In Phoenix, Nick Piecoro notes Angels manager Mike Scioscia "lost his challenge" in the second inning of yesterday's Angels-D-Backs game. The process "took about 2 1/2 minutes," and one factor "complicating things ... was that the technology in place at Salt River Fields is less advanced than what teams will have in major-league parks." Scioscia said, "I don't think it's going to take much time for the logistics to smooth out" (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 3/4). Scioscia added, "I'm sure they're going to tighten that up at some point" (OCREGISTER.com, 3/3). SPORTSNET's Mike Wilner wrote, "It’s great to see Major League Baseball making strides into the 21st (some might say 20th) Century and using technology to try to get some more plays right." It will be "very interesting, once the games start to count, to see how managers use their challenges, what strategy they’ll involve" (SPORTSNET.ca, 3/3).
