Domonic Brown to play in the Rising Stars game

If you get MLB Network, make sure to tune in on Saturday at 8 for the Rising Stars game, basically a best of the best from the guys in the Arizona Fall League. According to BA, Brown will be playing.

Stephen Strasburg will also be on display, as well as a few other notable NL East prospects in Drew Storen (WAS), Matt Dominguez (FLA), Mike Minor (ATL), and Ike Davis (NYM)

Hopefully Brown hits a HR or 4.
