Prospect Highlights: Stetson Allie Homer, Broxton’s Having a Solid Season

The highlights have been a little slow the last few days for Altoona and Indianapolis, so we waited a little bit to show this first clip. This is Stetson Allie’s 16th homer of the season, one behind JaCoby Jones for the Pirates organization lead.

Prospect Highlights: Lambo Homer, Mathisen Triple, RBI Hits From Bell and Allie

Four highlights today from three different levels, including a rare West Virginia Power video. Since the Rome Braves are the only team in the SAL that seems to tape games, and only during their home games, we don’t see many Power highlights.
