Alumni Liam Hicks Named to All AFL Team

by Duncan Watt

Toronto Mets Alumni C Liam Hicks (2017) has been name to the 2023 All-AFL team.

A 9th round pick of the Rangers in the 2021 Draft, Hicks led the AFL both in batting average (.449) and on-base percentage (.553) as the Surprise Saguaros won their second straight title.

It was a stellar fall season for Liam whose .449 average was the third-highest in AFL history, trailing only Ken Harvey’s .479 (2002) and Vance Wilson's .474 (1997). His season was highlighted by a stretch of 10 consecutive hits in 10 at bats.

Saguaros teammate and Mets alumni LHP Mitch Bratt (2021) was a familiar face in Surprise.

The Arizona Fall League is owned and operated by MLB which operates at six different baseball complexes. Arizona Fall League rosters are filled by many of the top prospects in Minor League Baseball who are assigned by their parent clubs.
