Braves reacts to MLB's use of instant replay

Posted: Updated:
KISSIMMEE, Fla. -

It is a huge change to our national pastime. Instant replay begins this season.

It will go something like this: If a manager disagrees with a play on the field, balls and strikes included, they can use their one challenge.

The umpires will then go to the backstop where they will get on a headset with a group of umpires monitoring the game in New York. They will go over the replays and make a final ruling.

One Braves executive was behind-the-scenes helping to make replay a reality.

FOX 5's Cody Chaffins spokes with Braves President John Schuerholz who says he is excited replay is here, but that it will create new challenges for the game.
