TEMPE, Ariz. - Former Sun Devil stars Ike Davis and Mike Leake will participate in the Arizona Fall League's Annual Rising Stars Showcase game. The game will be Saturday at 6:15 p.m. at Surprise Stadium. Davis and Leake will become the fourth and fifth Sun Devils to play in the Showcase, joining Travis Buck, Jeff Larish and Brett Wallace.
The Rising Stars Showcase is the fall league's version of Major League Baseball's Futures Game, which leads off the annual All-Star Game festivities each July. Scouting and minor league directors of every organization selected the players for the Showcase Game, and each big league club will have at least one player in the game.
