Dodgers NetworkSportsNet LA was officially approved by Major League Baseball and all signs point up for its’ launch on February 25. The new Los Angeles Dodger channel is set to debut next month and will have around the clock coverage of the team. Coverage will begin in the spring with every Spring Training game televised.

Orel Hershiser, Nomar Garciaparra, Jerry Hairston, Jr., and Alanna Rizzo have all been hired for game coverage by Time Warner Cable.

Meanwhile, a unanimous vote was passed by the 30 MLB teams to approve instant replay for the 2014 season. Coaches will now be able to challenge up to two plays in a game, unless they lose their first challenge. The decision to overturn a call will come from the Replay Command Center in New York and will not be looked at by the umpires.

Teams will be allowed to communicate with a video specialist in the clubhouse to determine whether a challenge is necessary. Replays will now be able to be shown on the video boards at stadiums for fans to view.
