Right after Eric started Bus Leagues, he noted that a passionate fan could probably manage to follow minor league baseball all year long. He’s right – if one reaches outside the United States and considers the entire Western Hemisphere, there’s always something going on.
I’ll do my best to provide some updates for all these leagues (there’s a young man making his debut soon in Arizona who I imagine we all have some interest in). It will largely depend on what MiLB.com has available for box scores and recaps, but I’ll see what I can do.
