I haven’t been to a minor league ball game in years, so have no opinion on the subject, but perhaps some people out there have seen enough games in the minors to have one. So, my question is: Which is the best minor league in MiLB today? Taking into account the quality of the teams, the cities, the ballparks, the general experience of going to a game. I guess some fans prefer the AAA leagues because the caliber of play is higher, and you’ll see many ex- and future major leaguers on the field. Others prefer rookie or low-A ball because of the intimacy of the experience and the chance to watch undeveloped players: the chance to think of yourself as a scout, watching players close up and making first-hand, unfiltered judgments of how good they are. And in low-A ball, there’s the lottery-like chance of seeing a future Hall of Famer play his first few games as a pro.
I think one of the appeals of going to a minor league game could be the chance to watch a game without all the noise (literal and figurative) that’s associated with a big league game. I imagine it’s much easier to focus on what’s happening on the field in a minor league game, where there’s not a huge tv screen behind the bleachers.
