Picayune's Braxton Lee named to Arizona Fall League All Star Roster


For the past quarter-century, the Arizona Fall League has served as a springboard for baseball players to leap up to the big leagues and reach stardom there. Since 2006, the AFL has gathered all of the future stars on one field for the Fall Stars Game. The rosters for this year's edition were announced on Monday and, as usual, they are jam packed with talent.

Picayune native Braxton Lee, who won the Southern League batting crown earlier this year, was selected to play on the East team for the AFL All-Star game. Lee is a member of the Miami Marlins organization and is the son of Russell and Jill Lee of Picayune.

The 12th edition of the Fall Stars Game will take place at Salt River Fields at 7:00pm on Saturday and will be broadcast on MLB Network and streamed live on MLB.com.
