One of the best things about minor league baseball is the accessibility. Whether you take that to mean how easy it is to drive to the ballpark, how you don't have to take out a second mortgage to watch a game with your family or how little wrangling it takes to get the team stud to sign your kid's souvenir baseball, it all fits.
