For those of us who are not fortunate enough to live in a large city with a Major League Baseball team, please be advised that your baseball thirst can be quenched. My life has been mostly an exposure to the Nashville Vols and the Durham Bulls (of movie fame). Add to that twelve years of managing Little League baseball teams and you have a baseball life that is relished by many.
In recent years, my life has changed in dramatic ways. One, I relocated to Fort Worth, Texas and I gained the opportunity to attend Texas Rangers’ baseball games. Secondly, I relocated to Fort Worth, Texas and discovered independent league baseball, American Association League baseball to be specific. I had no idea there was any baseball besides Major League, college, Minor League and Little League. What a pleasant surprise.
You’re probably thinking the independent leagues consist of losers and failures. Not a chance. Losers and failures don’t have the character and intestinal fortitude to not give up when faced with adversity and little time left to succeed.
