Rosters stacked with talent, including Vlad Guerrero Jr., as Arizona Fall League kicks off

Ronald Acuna Jr.’s grand slam on Sunday fueled the Atlanta Braves in their Game 3 win in the National League Division Series. A year ago this month, he was roaming the outfield for the Peoria Javelinas.

Acuna stands as the latest example of how the splendor of the Arizona Fall League never fully reveals itself until after the fact, by which point it becomes clear that the best players in the league are more than capable of starring at the game’s highest level.

The next wave of fall leaguers begin their season on Tuesday. As usual, the rosters are packed with talent – and this year’s might even be deeper than usual.

Feels a bit early for these sorts of articles, but, if they’re being written, we might as well link to them…..

I look forward to seeing Guerrero in the Blue Jays lineup 11-12 days after the start of next season.

I say this every year. If you find yourself in the PHX area this time of year, go to a Fall League game. It is...intimate and about as perfect of a place to see such raw baseball talent as you will find. The crowds are tiny, mostly hardcore baseball people/fans, and the natural sounds of chatter and the game resonate for all to hear. On an amusing note, foul balls are ignored by mostly everybody. The person who gets the souvenir usually can casually walk down to where the ball came to rest and pick it up.
