MLB Network to broadcast young stars in AFL games
MLB Network will broadcast three Arizona Fall League games in November: the Rising Stars Game, the Military Appreciation Game and the Championship Game.

The broadcasts will showcase some of Major League Baseball's premier young talent. Such stars as Ryan Braun, Andrew McCutchen, Buster Posey, Stephen Strasburg, Bryce Harper and Mike Trout each participated in one of the first six Rising Stars Games.

The seventh annual contest will be televised at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday from Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. Astros pitching prospect Jarred Cosart, representing the Mesa Solar Sox and East Division team, will square off against Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson of the Peoria Javelinas and West Division club.

MLB Network will air the Military Appreciation Game, a tilt between the Scottsdale Scorpions and Surprise Saguaros at Surprise Stadium at 8 p.m. ET on Nov. 10.

At 3 p.m. ET on Nov. 17, the network will broadcast the Championship Game, which pits the top two clubs from the six-team league at Scottsdale Stadium.

MLB Network's Paul Severino and Tom Verducci will call all three televised contests.
