Four, count ’em FOUR Reds prospects rocked the 2009 AFL Rising Stars Game. It was great to see Yonder Alonso go 3 for 4 (Double, 2 RBI), Chris Heisey go 2-3 (1 HR, Double, Walk, 2 RBI) and Mike Leake pitch a scoreless inning. Zack Cozart didn’t make an appearance.

What did we love the most? A young Redlegs rockin’ real, honest-to-god stirrups. Sanitary sock and all, folks. Mike Leake’s hosiery choice is featured in the photos above. The future is now.

    I would argue that this propels Leake into elite status (joining Sam LeCure) as an OMGReds minor-league favorite.
