A Website For Anyone Who Has Ever Been Involved With The Professional Independent Minor League Baseball Industry

Dear Independent Professional Baseball Veteran,

If you have ever been associated with a North American professional independent minor league baseball operation then this website is for you!

The content on this site is based on the requests from those who have played in the independent baseball leagues, owned teams, operated independent baseball leagues, and supported the teams in roles such as interns, umpires, announcers, and from baseball media.

This website can help you if you are:

  • A former independent baseball player looking up old statistics, pictures of the stadium, old logos, and other historical information
  • A  recently-retired player who needs some useful “How-To” information & resources which will help you transition from being in uniform to the working world
  • A former player who is considering getting back into independent baseball
  • Someone who wants to find independent baseball merchandise and memorabilia
  • A baseball historian as this is the starting point for your historical research on every independent professional baseball team since the 1993 inception of independent ball
  • A former independent baseball team employee
  • Someone who wants to find jobs in college and professional baseball
  • Someone who enjoys contributing photos of videos of your favorite current and former independent baseball teams.  Please keep the photos, videos, and comments clean since this is an “all ages” site!
  • Someone who wants to listen to live (and possibly archived) independent professional baseball games
  • Someone who wants to contribute content such as newspaper archives, links to podcasts or other audio interviews, or behind-the-scenes information about independent baseball
