Peterson & Rollins Named to AFL Fall Stars Game
The Arizona Fall League’s 10th annual Fall Stars Game Presented by Bowman Baseball Cards will be played at 6:08 p.m. AZ (8:08 p.m. ET) this Saturday, November 7 at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick.
Scouting and farm directors from every Major League organization, in consultation with Arizona Fall League Director Steve Cobb and his baseball personnel staff, selected the players for the annual showcase that pits top prospects from the Fall League’s East Division and West Division clubs.
The Mariners will be represented on the West Division club by infielder D.J. Peterson and left-handed pitcher David Rollins.
The contest will be nationally televised by MLB Network and online via MLB.com. Paul Severino (play-by-play), Joe Magrane (game analyst), and Jim Callis (prospect analyst) will call the game. The MLB Radio Network also will carry the game on Sirius/XM satellite radio. Mike Ferrin will offer play-by-play.
For those who didn’t see the link on Mariners.com last week, MLBpipeline.com had an AFL report on the Mariners where they featured Peterson and Tyler O’Neill. Check it out below.
