Minor League Baseball Is Major League Fun

What do Alabama, Connecticut, Iowa, Kentucky, Montana, Oregon, West Virginia, Wyoming and 20 other states have in common?  These states don't have Major League Baseball (MLB) teams, but they do have Minor League Baseball (MiLB) teams.

Minor League Baseball offers a more up close and personal experience, with stadiums that average around 10,000 seats versus the 39-68,000 at a Major League stadium.  Add in much lower ticket prices, and suddenly minor league baseball becomes a fun family & friends outing.
