I stumbled onto a fascinating discovery tonight: MiLB.com provides links to free audio feeds from around minor league baseball. Fans can listen to games for nearly 125 teams over the Internet.
I took advantage of this find to tune in to the High Desert-Rancho Cucamonga California League matchup. High Desert outfielder Jamie McOwen was trying to extend his hitting streak to forty games. He was 0-for-2 with a sacrifice and a walk when I tuned in, getting his fifth chance with two down in the ninth inning. He was behind in the count, 0-2, when he lined a pitch back up the middle for a base hit. It was pretty cool to hear the local announcer (who inexplicably sounded like Alan Alda) get excited when the ball cleared the infield safely.
This is a great idea that I plan on taking advantage of as often as possible, especially for teams like High Desert that I will never be able to see in person.
