The Arizona Fall League Schedule is Out

Scottsdale Scorpions

This will be our home team hat this year.  In case you missed it, the AFL released its schedule for 2014 last Wednesday, and the Phillies will be part of the Scottsdale Scorpions‘ team this year along with players from the Giants, Mets, Pirates, and Yankees.  Haven’t seen any listing of the players who will be going yet, but should be a fun group to watch!scottsdale stadium outside

    I guess I’m just an old fogey, but one of the things I liked about the sports’ schedules of old was that they were mostly seasonal: Baseball in the spring and summer, football in the fall, basketball in the winter and early spring. “Wait ’til next year” really had some meaning. Of the “big” sports, I still like baseball the best (and still enjoy it on the radio). Now there is no break, no time to take a breath. I’ve moved over into tennis, which I still play after 50 years, and I get into the mostly winter through summer schedule. Thinking about it, I’m even surprised that I feel this way, but I do find myself asking the question about baseball, football, and basketball: “Isn’t the season over yet?”

    • Yeh, you’re an old fogey, Marc! But your feelings are understandable. I’m a spring training and a Fall league junkie for entirely different reasons. Particularly the Fall League. which used to be called the Development League. has nothing to do with the “regular” baseball season. It is a very unique environment that comes as close to “Field of Dreams” as you can imagine. It is the first time that kids who have been used to being the best among their peers are playing competitively against other kids who have also been used to being head and shoulders among their peers. So it is a true proving ground of sorts. The more of a purist you are for the sport of baseball, the more delightful it is to attend AFL games as a fan.
