Re: Arizona Fall League 2013 Info
You can usually get one guy into the AFL if you want them. You need permission, but if the team wants to make it happen I can't see why they would be turned down. We need to remember that just because there are leagues in Venezuela, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic that prospects don't always get game time.
The eligibility rules I've read say that if the foreign-born player comes from a country that has a winter league (which VZ does), he's not eligible for the AFL. Maybe those rules are outdated, I don't know...
