Spring Training Instant Replay Experiment Begins Monday

Instant Replay makes its Spring Training debut during select MLB games Monday in both the Cactus and Grapefruit Leagues. Naturally, due to physical time zones, Florida will feature the technology first.

The video instant replay challenge system will be available to managers during the following Monday games:
• Washington Nationals vs. New York Yankees, 1:05 p.m. Eastern Time
• Toronto Blue Jays vs. Minnesota Twins (split squad), 1:05 p.m. ET

Over in Arizona, the following Cactus League games will be televised:
• Chicago Cubs vs. Milwaukee Brewers, 3:05 p.m. ET
• Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Oakland Athletics, 3:05 p.m. ET
• Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim vs. Arizona Diamondbacks, 3:10 p.m. ET

Note that all televised games (via MLB.TV) are scheduled for a first pitch of just past 1pm local time. The Cactus League (Arizona) falls within the Mountain Time Zone, which is two hours behind Eastern (or +1 Pacific).
