Yes, it's here! Arizona Fall League play got underway yesterday, and while I probably won't be following it closely until the World Series is over, it always figures to tide us over from the World Series through Thanksgiving, before LMP baseball begins in December. And it's a great chance to get to see top prospects from all 30 teams hone their skills with each other in a competitive environment.

Here's the schedule...

I'm planning to go next month, but I haven't even looked yet to see who is on the rosters!

Maybe you ladies have not yet had a chance to follow up, but I am finding that the updates posted on mlb.com are helpful on keeping up. Here is the one for this week

Thanks, Cath. I appreciate the low-key baseball news especially with the way I'm fuming right now. Soon enough, I'll be able to enjoy AFL ball.

Anybody want to make a trip over in the next couple of weeks? Now that the World series is over I am about ready and I have some work I can arrange time around in the Phoenix area, most likely it would be the week after next. I wanted to try and make it over for the Fall Stars Game this weekend but that will not happen now because I have to be in S.D. But as I said, middle of November, maybe mid week - not sure how that will fit in with other work schedules.

Let's see how next weekend looks, okay?

For now, I'm going to watch the Fall Stars Game tonight!

Thank goodness for AFL! How about our Buddy Reed!

As far as next weekend, I will be filling in for a coworker in the area for an event during the week next week. At this point the weekend does not look as good. Sad

I could take some time off early next week, of that would work. I don't want to miss any more Beer Week events than I have to, lol.

We should talk about availability this week, Sunny, what day or days are best for you?

Get those priorities straight, Sunnyblue. I don't blame you. Smile

So how was the trip?

I'm back. Another worthwhile trek across the desert for me, but without Danny this time. Cathy was driving home as of this morning. I'll let her post about it.

Well, the Javelinas are going to play Salt Lake tomorrow in the championship game. I wish I could turn around and go back!

We saw Mesa at Peoria, and then Peoria play at Scottsdale. Austin Allen had a couple of hits in the Scottsdale game but they still won, 10-3. The first game was almost the opposite of that as Peoria won 14-3.

I know it would be a last minute thing but does anyone want to come over and watch the game? I know my husband's buddy down the street is coming by for it.

Sorry I didn't, but at least I let you know that. Smile

It was the first Saturday in something like eight weeks I had nothing planned and I had to stay home and catch up on a LOT of work that has piled up. Let's try to get together maybe on Thanksgiving weekend.

Congratulations to the Javelinas for winning the AFL championship!

Yes, congratulations to all. I feel like some year I should just take a whole week off and spend it there so I can see games with all of the teams.

All AFL team has been named

Our young catcher Austin Allen is right there in the mix.

Notice Tyler Nevin and Keston Hiura are on the team, too. I look forward to seeing what kind of careers these young players end up having.
