There is talk that a Major League Baseball team will one day reside in Las Vegas. At the very least, the commissioner is open to the idea. Of course, there’s already a pro baseball team in Sin City: the Las Vegas 51s, the Triple-A affiliate of the New York Mets. Aside from the awesome logo on their hats, having its top affiliate in Vegas has been problematic for the Mets. The 2,237 miles from Vegas to Queens are most between any AAA team and its big league club, making it difficult for players to get to New York in a timely fashion.
I’m excited to announce I’m now an Associate Editorial Producer for MiLB.com, the official website of Minor League Baseball. Several nights a week, I’ll be writing stories about the players and teams throughout the minors. From Rookie ball to Triple-A, my colleagues and I will have you covered.
