Weekend Winter Wrapup (5 Nov 07)

I tried to watch some of the USD – Long Beach State game on Sunday at Cunningham Stadium, but it was brutal. These kids haven’t been playing for some time, and it showed. I’ve never seen so many walks and wild pitches. To the winter leagues… Friday, November 2 Saguaros 11, Javelinas 5 (box | [...]

Weekend Winter Wrapup (29 Oct 07)

Congrats to the Red Sox on their World Series victory or whatever. Stephen said it best in the comments: Nothing warms my heart more than seeing Tom Werner standing on the podium to accept the WS trophy. For those who may have forgotten why we detest Werner in these parts, here’s a handy reminder. Aside [...]

I think I’ve tracked down all the Padres playing there, but let me know if I’ve missed anyone… Arizona Fall [...]

Off-Season Schedule

I tried to be spontaneous once. Didn’t work out as I’d planned. Bad jokes aside, here’s the general idea for the off-season. I’ll be posting at least three times a week for most of the winter (except right around Thanksgiving). Everything is subject to change but I’ll try to stick to the below as much [...]

Winter League 1999-2000: Arizona Fall League

The Arizona Fall League (AFL) works a little differently from the other Winter Leagues. It’s actually subsidised by Major League Baseball with the purpose of serving as a league where the best prospects can further work on their game against better competition.
