Arizona Fall League Brewers History Note: The following six players were the original six Brewers prospects in the first Arizona Fall League in 1992: LHP Brian Dodson; OF Kenny Felder; INF John Finn; LHP Tom McGraw; RHP Scott Taylor, and RHP Robert Wishnevski. None of those players made it to the big leagues as a Brewer. The 1993 group was a little more successful as it included INF Jeff Cirillo and C Mike Matheny.
Fall Fodder: I saw on the marquee sign for Scottsdale Stadium that stadium officials wasted no time in congratulating their Spring Training tenant, the San Francisco Giants, on winning the 2010 World Series…..A reminder to fans to tune in to Saturday’s “Rising Stars Game” on MLB Network at 8 p.m. CT, if you want to see the future of Major League Baseball, this is it, scouts compare the game to the “MLB All-Star Futures Game” during the MLB All-Star festivities in July, except these players are even closer to the Big Leagues…..Tomorrow, I plan on visiting Tony Diggs, Assistant Director – Player Development/Training Center in Maryvale in the morning before Surprise’s game and checking in on the Winter Development Program…..Please e-mail me with any questions you have for Brewers General Manager Doug Melvin regarding any of the players I have written about this week or anything in the Brewers farm system, I will be interviewing him next week as a wrap-up and will take questions from fans as well.
