Ben Hill and Josh Jackson at MiLB.com are out today with a great piece on the top 10 minor league systems based on fan experience. And lo and behold, the Miami Marlins system, featuring our amazing Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp, came out on top.
We’re biased, but of course the quadrumvirate of Jacksonville, Pensacola, Beloit, and Jupiter comes out on top. The Atlantic coast (x2), the Gulf Coast, and a shiny new midwestern ballpark, backed by creative and fun people…what’s not to like?
Following the Marlins, you had:
- Minnesota Twins
- Boston Red Sox
- Colorado Rockies
- Los Angeles Angels
- Philadelphia Phillies
- Tampa Bay Rays
- Houston Astros
- New York Mets
- Detroit Tigers (which should be higher because Toledo is awesome)
Go give the article a read when you have a chance. These guys are both great and you won’t be disappointed.
