Getting to Know the Neighbors

With the restructuring of Minor League Baseball in 2021, the International League is now known as “Triple-A East.” I know that the vacuous corporate suits at MLB did this to allow for a corporate sponsor of each minor league, but it is so, so bland and just feels wrong. Nevertheless, a complete preview of the league can be found here on MiLB.com. The Jumbo Shrimp will be competing in the Southeast Division along with the following teams:

Charlotte Knights

Durham Bulls

Gwinnett Stripers

Memphis Redbirds

Nashville Sounds

Norfolk Tides

The schedule makers have ordained that we only get to see four of these six teams here in Jacksonville this season. Thanks to both to the limited schedule due to Covid-19 and the decision by MLB to move the start of the MiLB season back to May, we will have to wait until 2022 to see Memphis and Gwinnett (and any of the other International League teams) here in Jax. Roll on May 4th!
