This week we talk about the contraction of Minor League Baseball and the business of the Minor Leagues in general.

This will be a long and academic episode, covering anti-trust law, the Professional Baseball Agreement, Player Development Contracts and will answer the question "Why does congress have ANY say in if Baseball players use steroids?"

You will also hear the current list of teams expected to be contracted, and which logos you should look out for.

Welcome to the first episode of LOGOSHOW with the Minor League Geek. On this show we take a look at a single logo, and try to figure out why, and how it came to be.

For our first logo we are looking at the Derby City Mint Juleps, a two game logo for the Louisville Bats. Created in 2019 it is a tip of the hat to a horse race that neither the Bats nor I own the rights to say. 

You can find them at https://www.derbycitymintjuleps.com/

Its that time again, the smell of peanuts in the air, the unending screaming of the damned faintly wafting over the outfield wall. The children all tucked in to their beds with great care, with dreams that BLASEBALL soon would be there.

Today I discuss the phenomena that is Blaseball, which is a baseball box score and gambling simulator that thank to some out of the box idea, and TONS of fans getting in on the action, is the ultimate quarantine sport, you have never heard about.
