MiLB Major Fun Weekend is here and to celebrate, we've made MiLB.TV available to all fans for FREE through Sunday. See Baseball's Future Stars from all 30 Major League organizations as they take the field across the United States. With more than 100 games available live and thousands more on-demand, there's plenty of action to keep you busy these three days!
The Minor League Ballpark Guide, an ongoing project, provides in-depth explorations of active Minor League facilities. Learn about unique features, standout concession items, team history, things to do (and eat) in the surrounding area and more. Use them as a resource to plan your own ballpark road trip.
(Created with mapchart.net. Click to enlarge.) While Minor League Baseball is an introduction to pro ball for the players, it can also be a place where fans first meet the game. From Florida to Alaska, Hawaii to Maine, this map illustrates the closest Minor League team to each county in the United States. There are three counties that play home to two team each: San Bernadino, California (Rancho Cucamonga & Inland Empire); Pinellas, Florida (Dunedin & Clearwater); Palm Beach, Florida (Palm Beach & Jupiter). The Omaha Storm Chasers (181 counties) and St. Paul Saints (180) cover the most counties while Vancouver covers the most ground thanks to Alaska.
In The Show Before the Show, MiLB.com writers Tyler Maun and Sam Dykstra break down Minor League Baseball's biggest storylines with guests from around the Minors, including top prospects, managers, player development experts and other newsmakers. There's also a weekly look at what's going on outside the lines with business of the Minors expert Benjamin Hill.
