Once Upon A Time in the MiLB

There was once a time when all was well in the baseball world.

Major Leagues and Minor Leagues played in harmony.

Scouts traveled to parts unknown to find the next Babe Ruth.

Those days seem like eons ago when we talk about the Wild West that is the 2020 season, or in MiLB’s case – the lack thereof.

Chris Vitali sits down with Kevin Kernan, Josh Hejka, Dan Tiant and B9 Ombudsman Rocco Constantino to talk about the showdown between MiLB’s owners, players and the man in the black hat – Rob Manfred.

Who will ride in on the white horse and save the day?

BallNine tries to figure that out in this week’s Roundhouse.

Chris is the Founder & Editor-in-Chief of BallNine and was the other half of the battery for the 1986 Belleville Recreation Farm League Champion Indians. He sometimes answers to "Willie Randolph Hearst". After a few years as a touring musician he decided to become a Chef, a position he held until the industry almost killed him. Now he likes to spend his time talking about the absurdities of baseball and training his army of attack squirrels in the yard of his California home.
