Winter-like cold has spread over the Chicago area and the Cubs won’t be in spring training action for another three months.
But, there will be Cubs prospects playing on TV tonight in the Arizona Fall League’s “Military Appreciation Game.” The Mesa Solar Sox, where Cubs prospects play, will travel to Salt River Fields, the spring home of the Diamondbacks and Rockies, to face the Salt River Rafters tonight at 7 p.m. CT. The game will be televised live on MLB Network and streamed on MLB.com.
So, here’s a game thread for you. Information you’ll need:
Mesa Solar Sox roster (Mesa has prospects from the Cubs, Red Sox, Tigers, Athletics and Angels)
Salt River Rafters roster (Salt River has prospects from the Diamondbacks, Rockies, Marlins, Twins and Nationals)
MLB.com game preview. Of note:
Active duty military personnel and veterans will be admitted free to the game at Salt River Fields, the Spring Training home of the D-backs and Rockies. They also will be given free admission to all three AFL games on Veterans Day on Monday.
Enjoy more televised baseball, and discuss amongst yourselves.
