NEW YORK (AP) -- Expanded instant replay will be given a test next week by Major League Baseball at the Arizona Fall League.

MLB said the new video review procedures will be used during five AFL games from Tuesday through Nov. 9. AFL umpires will work the games and MLB umpires will observe. The contemplated procedures allow each manager one challenge over the first six innings and two from the seventh inning on. Challenged calls will be reviewed by a crew in MLB headquarters in New York City, which will make a final ruling.

Expanded video review, developed by Atlanta Braves President John Schuerholz, MLB Executive Vice President Joe Torre and MLB Special Assistant to the Commissioner Tony La Russa, is subject to approval by owners, the players' association and the umpires' union.

"The opportunity to test our ideas under game conditions with future major leaguers will be an important next step," Schuerholz said in a statement Friday. "We look forward to examining new perspectives generated by play on the field and learning what modifications might prove beneficial before our committee issues our formal recommendation later this offseason."
