MLB Network to air two AFL games

A number of elite prospects are gaining more seasoning at the Arizona Fall League.

In November, fans will have an opportunity to view some of their progress.

MLB Network announced on Friday that it will televise two Arizona Fall League games in November, including the fourth annual Rising Stars Game and the Championship game.

The Rising Stars Game will take place on Nov. 7 at 8 p.m. ET. MLB Network's Tony Clark and Arizona D-backs announcer Daron Sutton will handle the broadcast live from Surprise Stadium.

The 18th annual Fall League Championship game will air on Nov. 21 at 2:30 p.m. ET. The Saturday contest will be played at Scottsdale Stadium, and MLB Network host Victor Rojas will call the game.

MLB.com, the official Web site of Major League Baseball, will co-produce and provide free live and on-demand video streams of the two games. The Phoenix Desert Dogs are the defending champions.

The Rising Stars Game matches prospects from each Major League Baseball organization in an East Division against West Division format.

Teams from the East Division feature prospects from the Angels, Athletics, Blue Jays, Cubs, Diamondbacks, Giants, Marlins, Nationals, Orioles, Phillies, Pirates, Rays, Red Sox, Rockies and Twins.

Players on the West squad will come from the Astros, Braves, Cardinals, Dodgers, Indians, Mariners, Mets, Padres, Rangers, Reds, Royals, Tigers, White Sox, and Yankees.

In recent years, the Rising Stars Games featured a number of players who have already established themselves in the big leagues. The list includes Gordon Beckham (White Sox), Ryan Braun (Brewers), Jacoby Ellsbury (Red Sox), Yunel Escobar (Braves), Tommy Hanson (Braves), Phil Hughes (Yankees), Kevin Kouzmanoff (Padres), Jed Lowrie (Red Sox), Daniel Murphy (Mets), Hunter Pence (Astros) and Matt Weiters (Orioles).
