Six prospects nominated for Stenson Award

Jim Callis | BlueJays.comDetails

The main focus of the Arizona Fall League is to help prospects in the final stages of their development. It gives extra at-bats, defensive reps and innings to players hoping to make the jump to the Major Leagues. While refining skills is the point of emphasis, the AFL also honors one player each year for qualities unrelated to on-field performance.
