Ellsbury became the fourth player in major league history to eclipse 200 hits, 100 RBI, 35 stolen bases and 30 home runs in the same season. A total of 99 Arizona Fall League alumni graced the rosters of the eight teams in the MLB playoffs, representing nearly 50% of the 200 players on post-season rosters. Leading the way were the Tampa Bay Rays, Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals, who had 14 former Fall Leaguers each on their 25-man rosters for the ALDS and NLDS. Three of the last four no. 1 overall picks in the MLB First-Year Player Draft are playing in this year s Arizona Fall League: RHP Gerrit Cole (Mesa) was drafted first by the Pirates in 2011, OF Bryce Harper (Scottsdale) was taken first by the Nationals in 2010 and IF Tim Beckham (Surprise) was made the first overall selection by the Rays in Additionally, RHP Stephen Strasburg, the no. 1 pick of the Nationals in 2009, played for Phoenix in 2009, meaning the last four no. 1 overall picks have played in the AFL. Since 1992, the year the Arizona Fall League started, 13 of the 20 no. 1 overall picks in the MLB draft will have played in the AFL. The current streak of four straight no. 1 picks ( ) is the second-longest streak, following a five-year stretch ( ) that saw Matt Anderson (1997), Pat Burrell (1998), Josh Hamilton (1999), Adrian Gonzalez (2000) and Joe Mauer (2001) all participate in the AFL. The Arizona Fall League will have two games televised nationally on the MLB Network and online at MLB.TV this season: the Rising Stars Game on November 5 and the AFL Championship Game on November 19.
