Arizona Fall League schedule released
Details for the 2011 Arizona Fall League season were released Wednesday as the league continued to prepare to enter its 20th season.

The league -- which has been home to nine Major League MVP Award winners and three Cy Young Award winners in its two decades of history -- features seven weeks of baseball, pitting teams comprised of many of the top prospects in baseball at six Maricopa County Spring Training stadiums.

The season kicks off with Opening Day on Oct. 4 and wraps up with the annual championship game Nov. 19 at Scottsdale Stadium. The popular Rising Stars Game is scheduled for Nov. 5 at Surprise Stadium.

Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, the new Spring Training home of the D-backs and Rockies, will enter into the mix this fall as the new home to the Salt River Rafters. The Rafters will play 19 home games -- including 10 night contests -- at the new facility.

Other returning league venues include Mesa Hohokam Park (Mesa Solar Sox), Peoria Sports Complex (Peoria Javelinas), Phoenix Municipal Stadium (Phoenix Desert Dogs), Scottsdale Stadium (the defending champion Scottsdale Scorpions) and Surprise Stadium (Surprise Saguaros).
