John Schuerholz optimistic expanded instant replay will be in place this season

PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. - PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) — The head of the committee that developed Major League Baseball's plan to expand instant replay says he is optimistic the system will be in place this season, even though owners and unions for players and umpires have yet to approve.

Atlanta Braves President John Schuerholz says that because of the complexities, he expects the system will need three years of use to resolve problems that develop.

The plan would give managers the right to challenge most calls except balls and strikes, with one challenge allowed in the first six innings and two from the seventh inning on. A successful challenge would not count against the limits.

Schuerholz says he is uncertain whether owners will vote on the proposal during Thursday's meeting.
