Salt River Rafters vs. Scottsdale Scorpions, Wednesday 11/6, 8 p.m. CT

More bonus baseball tonight down in the desert, with a slightly different take on the replay-review system.


In the second of five televised games from the Arizona Fall League, Major League Baseball will be changing up its system for reviewing plays, to try something different than they did in the first game Tuesday night.

Tuesday, managers were allowed unlimited challenges and challenges were to take no longer than three minutes. In tonight's game, there will still be unlimited challenges, but with a bit of a different twist:

For instance, plays in Tuesday night's game at Salt River Fields between the Solar Sox and the Rafters could be challenged at any point prior to the next play. But in Wednesday night's second experimental game, there will be a 20-second limit on challenges.

So, managers of the two teams involved tonight will have to decide very quickly whether to challenge. It appeared they did so Tuesday night even without this time limit.

The Rafters, who you saw Tuesday night against the Mesa Solar Sox, have prospects from the Blue Jays, Cardinals, Diamondbacks, Rays and Rockies. The Scorpions have prospects from the Braves, Giants, Mets, Pirates and Yankees.

If you don't have MLB Network, the game is being streamed online at, or you can follow along on this Gameday link.

Enjoy some more November baseball and discuss amongst yourselves.
