After cancellation last year due to COVID, AFL baseball will make its return next month! Very Happy

Major League Baseball announced the schedule this week.

Yea! I cannot wait to plan a trip. Maybe we can all make it over, this year?

I will be ready to go any time after this next week! Smile

A question - does anyone remember Hans Crouse out of Dana Hills High? He is a Phillies prospect now and is with the Javelinas. He struck out 5 Solar Sox hitters in 4 innings today, all on his cutter/slider, in their win today - link from phillies.com

I have been anxious to see how McKenzie Gore does in AFL this year, and he is one of the few elite pitchers to be playing in it. However on Thursday this week, the Bobby Miller of the Dodgers outpitched Gore as the top 2 pitchers in the fall league faced off against each other. I wonder how Dodger ladies feel about Miller?

Well it appears I am the only one posting in this thread. No comments about Bobby Miller. Sad I will report back on the AFL Stars Game we attended, later, if anyone is interested.

And do I ever appreciate that you are posting here! With all my "problems" of sorts, my reading has been very limited and my viewing next to nothing other than a few highlights. So I'm always anxious to get your reports from first-hand viewing. I haven't even checked my usual blogs or AFL updates that I usually get to, and now it's almost over! Surprised

Congratulations to the Mesa Solar Sox for winning the AFL championship! They beat Surprise, 6-0! I finally made it for the last game! Smile Super effort for Cubs prospect/former OC Riptide pitcher Caleb Kilian, who threw 6 perfect innings.

It was so refreshing to watch a baseball game in person again.

I know that feeling, Sunnyblue - and that pitching performance was awesome. Great season, Solar Sox.
