Nolan Arenado Honored as Part of Arizona Fall League History

Bowman Baseball Cards is celebrating the Arizona Fall League’s silver anniversary season by sponsoring an exclusive oversized player card giveaway series that recognizes the top 25 all-time AFL players. The Colorado Rockies are well represented among these AFL players.

At all remaining Arizona Fall League night games through Wednesday, Nov. 16, two former outstanding AFL players will be recognized each night.

The Rockies will take center stage on Thursday, Nov. 3, when Peoria visits Salt River. Current Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado and former Colorado shortstop Troy Tulowitzki will be the card giveaway that night.

The first 1,000 fans entering the designated ballparks will receive one complimentary oversized player card of each of the two players being honored at that game.
