The Majors and the Minors: Looking At The Issue

On Wednesday, Frankie Mandile of SSTN wrote an in-depth article (days ahead of most media outlets) outlining the issues that have come up regarding Major League Baseball and its relationship with the Minor Leagues.

As this story seems to be now reaching the headlines, we have gathered a collection of articles that focus on this topic so that our readers can learn more:

SB Nation – MLB’s plan to eliminate 42 minor league baseball teams, explained

NY Post – MLB unveils plan for drastic cut in minor league teams

CBS Sports – MLB commissioner Rob Manfred makes argument in favor of cutting more than 40 minor-league franchises

Baseball America – MLB Proposal Would Eliminate 42 Minor League Teams

USA Today – As many as 42 minor league baseball teams could be eliminated in new MLB proposal

In the days and weeks to come, we will be looking at this more closely.

We welcome the readers’ thoughts. We would especially welcome stories that readers share about their own experiences going to minor league games.

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

"Scattering The Ashes has all the feels. Paul Russell Semendinger's debut novel taps into every emotion. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll reexamine those relationships that give your life meaning." — Don Burke, writer at The New York Post

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
