This is a historic. Moment for baseball. We have we have draw. Move forward with a plan that will give our managers and opportunity. To. Help control. The calls that are made an impact their team give them a better opportunity. To see to it that. They have an opportunity to win the game first time in history baseball that managers have been empowered. With this capability. You should also know. That the umpires are very very receptive to this -- They have spent enough time being. Being abused or being a lot of bad comments about. What's happened in what's been viewed on replays. And with the advanced technology that we have replays they understand that it can be of value took a valuable tool for them. And we intend -- to use it as that an opportunity for the managers. To help. They're club win the game for baseball in general to two dramatically reduce. The number of incorrect calls. That are made in any game that impact the outcome of that game and and hence. The outcome of division races. So we believe not only is it you start that it will be impact slow and very very meaningful and useful. For all sides of our organization. Major League Baseball the owners -- Managers will have a neutral that they'll have to learn how to use. That's the one thing -- I'm sure many you talk to managers and they have some wonderment or some some consternation perhaps but we believe that with. Conversation with training with the understanding that they'll become as comfortable in managing the use of that -- As the head in any other new rule that came before them over to them. They learned how. To utilize that SS and and we believe that happened there will be. Our meetings with -- Joseph Torre and Tony La Russa. Starting at the winter meetings this year with all of our managers -- will continue in the spring training we'll have training sessions with the umpires. That will start in the Arizona Fall League this year on this winner and continuing to spring training so we we know we have to train. And prepare people for this visit everyone is embracing it we believe that managers will in time as well so again it's historic surpassed what we think it's exciting. And you should know that it is a phase in plan with this is but the first -- Where's Tony -- resources in the first iteration of our plan. Because you know where. And at the end of thirteen will go with an option at the end of fourteen will go back and look at what we've done well what's worked what hasn't worked. And make adjustments and and improve it. In the next Rolla the next stage the second generation and and we think that by no more than yet another third admiration we will virtually. We will eliminate we will have to diminish them -- -- level the number incorrect calls that impact the outcome market. It's gonna take some time. We're excited about what happened in fourteen and we we expect also utilized it in the playoffs in 2014. And perhaps even in an enhanced match. We'll add to what we've seen this worked in fourteen during the regular season. And will make it. Even more useful during the playoffs so those most important games for all of us and our fans and our industry. Rule will be you know adjudicated. Almost as perfectly as they can it's a manager. Challenge system. The manager -- she's -- -- that he believes is incorrect he will file a challenge with the umpire news crew chief -- A call that is review. We have choose to segments. Of -- place reviewer -- plays which by the way will cover 89%. Of those incorrect calls that have been made in the past are included in review plays. 11% remaining or in the non -- -- plays which can still be argued. Five a manager and manager can still requests that you know pars. Get together and discuss it to see if someone else on the crucial it differently. But it can is that it's not remove fuel most of those plays when you see them. Are plays that if they are turned over the reset of the runners in the recent of them played with the mind boggling. And so that's the way we've we've chosen to start. Their review of what plays the -- 89% of the Ian Baker articles that have been me and the non review plays -- which can be argued. Review plays are not allowed to be argued that he if he goes out for a durable play and to take exception to what he must challenge. And so that it can be -- reviews there's no argument allowed under review. Now some managers will have to you know you'd get their mind cleared the bench coach want to tell them to review one we should go count that so. That so so once that's done. The the home plate umpire or -- crew chief will go to communications center. Somewhere on the field near the backstop near near -- one of the candidates and pick up a phone that we'll have a direct secure line true. Major League Baseball ban me and over him. And there will be there umpires. Who have been monitoring the games with technicians who can queue up for them. And it will expedite. To the extent that now are replaced at three minutes and four seconds on average. And we expect at the replays now we'll take a minute fifteen. Because we would direct line of communication no person we have we have a challenge we have a challenge in Atlanta on the play at second base here in the third inning. No -- it up. The guy will say you got it right where you've got off. And what if you got a wrong they have to turn it over and and you know they'll do it. That the the ultimate decision maker is the umpire looking at them that the review. In New York. Not to project not not only government and it is the person in New York with the benefit to -- the emotion takes the in all the things that we see you see we see people in the stands -- -- well. That's how will be at bats or if a manager has -- challenge and it's upheld by the review he maintains that change. He'll have one challenged through innings one through six. And we'll have two challenges through innings seven through the end of the game and if he does not you. Part. Two more in innings seven through the end he cannot if he does not utilize. If he does not utilized his challenge in the first to admit it doesn't carry over so that they have three in the took one wanted to.
