For the love of minor league baseball

Today I spent my time in the minors, well watching minor league baseball. The Norfolk Tides and Syracuse Chiefs. Very few fans were  at the ballpark for the day game. I was watching in the comfort of my home thanks to milb.tv. While the feed is bad, the sound worse, and sometimes the camera work was fuzzy. The game was still there. There is something almost traditional about minors, it makes me think of how it was in the 20 and 30 before all the technology its a simple game. You throw the ball, you hit the ball, you catch the ball. Minor leagues give you a chance to catch a glimpse of the future of the MLB. Or a flash back to the past, Yes, there was a reason I am watching the Norfolk Tides, my favorite player is on the team. Jayson Nix who I met during his first time in the minors, such a nice guy and after we met I became his fan ever since. Jayson did some great field work as usual and today the bat wasn’t there but he has been improving on that. A solid performance by the whole Tides team and they won 2-1.  While its too far for me to go to a Norfolk game at least I can cheer for them and Jayson.
