Arizona Fall League Recap: 11/18

  • Josh Harrison – Pittsburgh Pirates
    What a year for Josh Harrison in 2010! Playing most of 2010 at 22 years old in AA, Harrison finished 2nd in hits, 5th in average, and 7th in doubles to help Altoona capture the Eastern League Championship. If that wasn’t enough, Josh was invited to play and excelled in the Arizona Fall league for the Mesa Solar Sox. While in the AFL, Josh finished in the Top 10 in an amazing SEVEN offensive categories; Hits, runs, doubles, triples, total bases, walks, and a perfect 6-6 in stolen bases narrowly missing the top 10 in batting average with a .330 average. In a league filled with future Major League talent, Josh showed he belongs in that class. An invitation to Big League camp and playing time in Pittsburgh are all great possibilities for this advanced player in 2011, at only 23 years old!
