The beauty of it was the baseball was excellent, the ticket prices were reasonable, the players were closer to us, you could talk to them, etc. It was just great family entertainment. And in my young professional days, I continued to support the local club. I had a couple great friends associated with different club organizations. I haven't been to a minor league game in years, but I'll always fondly remember those days. What great fun. In some ways, it's more fun than MLB.
Hey Kerbie, there was no baseball minor leagues where I grew up but there was the American Hockey League (in Canada), which is the farm system for the NHL. My dad had seasons tickets for a few years and took me to many of the games. Saw future superstars.

We have practically had a minor league team here in Pittsburgh for over a generation. There’s an actual minor league team south of here in Washington Pa but they’re like a AA team.
