Alumni Kingery & Cron to Play In 2016 Arizona Fall League
Sep 3, 2016 5:20 AM

The Arizona Fall League is the premier league for Minor League Baseball's top talent. With six players from each Major League club's farm system combining to form only six teams, each game presents incredible matchups of high-ceiling prospects. You can be sure that most of this year's AFL players will be Major League players down the road and many will be All-Stars. It is an exciting schedule that begins October 11 and ends with a championship game on November 19. This year will be particularly exiting for the Mountain Pointe family as two more of our former players will be participating:

Scott Kingery
Scott Kingery (class of 2012) went on to play at the University of Arizona as a walk-on after a tremendous career at Mountain Pointe where he was a leader on and off the field. He was voted Pac-12 Player of the Year following his junior year. Drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 2nd round of the 2015 draft, Scott is currently playing the regular season for the Phillies Double-A team, the Reading Fightin Phils. His AFL assignment is with the Scottsdale Scorpions (Angels, Mets, Yankees, Phillies and Giants.)
Kevin Cron
Kevin Cron (class of 2011) set Arizona high school records for career (60) and single season (27) home runs that may never be broken. After playing 3 years at Texas Christian University, Kevin was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 14th round of the 2014 draft. He is currently playing his regular season with the D'backs' Double-A Mobile BayBears. Kevin is following in his brother's footsteps with his participation in the AFL. He will be playing for the Salt River Rafters (Diamondbacks, Braves, Rockies, Tigers and Brewers.)

Scott and Kevin will be joined on the Arizona Fall League fields by other former Arizona high school stars Jamie Westbrook (Basha High class of 2013), Cody Bellinger (Hamilton High class of 2013) and Alex Verdugo (Tucson Sahuaro class of 2014). Do not miss your opportunity to see some great baseball in intimate venues and cheer on Scott and Kevin!
