AFL Rising Stars Game Thread

Image Hosted by

If you are sitting all alone at home and are bored tonight, flip your TV on to MLB Network at 8pm.  The Arizona Fall League wraps up with their Rising Stars game.  It's a chance to see some young players who could end up being stars in the big leagues in the very near future.

From a Reds perspective, there should be four farmhands getting playing time tonight.  Chris Heisey is batting 4th and playing LF for the home AFL West team.  Batting right behind him is 1B Yonder Alonso.  Zack Cozart is on the bench for the AFL West team and Mike Leake will be in the bullpen.  Since it is a showcase game, I expect we'll see all of them play.

If you can't watch the game on TV, you can follow along with Gameday.  The game is in Surprise, so if I'm not mistaken, there will be Pitch FX for your viewing pleasure.
