AFL Week Three Update 2008
The AFL’s third annual Rising Stars Showcase took place this week. The rosters are made up of “sure thing prospects” along with a few additional players that have had a strong AFL season.
The theme of the game was AL vs NL. Tommy Hanson, (bio & stats) was the star of the game. In 3 IP he allowed 0 hits & 0 runs. He walked 2 and stuck out 7 of baseball’s best prospects. Starting for the NL in this game was Yankees prospect Phil Hughes. In his 3 IP of work he allowed 2 HR.
Toronto Blue Jays prospect J.P. Arencibia batted fourth for the AL and hit one HR and collected five total bases.
The AL won the game 7 – 6.
I’ve decided to change things up this week. Instead of the six or so individual player quips I’ve gone with a couple of longer biographies.
