KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- Major league teams will each have at least five games this spring where managers can challenge plays as part of the major expansion of instant replay which begins this season.

Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez is looking forward to getting acquainted with it and says he'll "challenge everything, just to get a feel for it" in those five games.

Gonzalez, Houston manager Bo Porter and officials from the Tigers and Nationals met with MLB executives Joe Torre and Tony La Russa for almost three hours Friday afternoon to go over the replay rules.

The new rules allow each manager to challenge one call a game. If he wins the first one, he'll earn another challenge. The crew chief can request a review after the seventh inning if the manager has used his challenges.
