Arizona Fall League update
With the Cardinals’ run to the NLCS and the tragedy that followed, I haven’t offered much of an update on the happenings down at the Arizona Fall League. Let’s rectify that today.
The AFL, which began on Oct. 7 and continues for another two weeks, offers some of the better prospects in the game the opportunity to compete against their peers. The group of players representing the Cardinals are part of the Peoria Javelinas club, which is 7-11-2.
