The Arizona Fall League will stage its third annual Rising Stars Game at 7:15 p.m. on Friday at Surprise Stadium.
Scouting and minor league directors of every major-league organization, in consultation with Fall League Executive Director Steve Cobb and his baseball personnel staff, selected the players for the showcase. Each major-league organization is represented by at least one player.
The National Division team will include RHP Phil Hughes and OF Austin Jackson of the Yankees.
Huh, it would seem that professional scouts and executives think Phil and Austin have bright futures. Imagine that.
