Three Former ‘Cats Named to AFL All-Star Game
Just because the Major League season is over doesn't mean that the baseball season is over for the year. There's still Winter Ball in Caribbean Nations, and we still have Fall ball here in the United States.
The Arizona Fall League is a developmental league for several of the games top prospects and on Tuesday, the league named its all-star teams.
The teams, rife with talent, include a West and an East squad, and on the West team are three former Tri-City ValleyCats:
All three players spent part of the 2014 season in Tri-City. Reed, a top selection in the 2014 draft out of Kentucky, was named the Astros Minor League Offensive Player of the Year this year. His massive power gives him serious potential at first base at the Major League level.
Davis, the Astros third-round selection in 2014 from Cal State-Fullerton, hit .289 for the Lancaster JetHawks (A ball) this year.
Fisher, the first-round selection in 2014 out of Virginia, hit .275 this year across two leagues. His speed and ability to make contact make him a projectable player as well.
The game is Saturday, Nov. 7 at 8 p.m. and can be seen on the MLB Network.
