This is Cobb Field, home to the Billings Mustangs, my hometown team. They are the Reds Rookie League affiliate. It's an old, old stadium but the experience is hard to match. They are building a new stadium, set to open for next season, so I'm sure we're going to lose some of that classic baseball feel. It's tough to beat that backdrop though!

I too think it makes sense to cluster the minor league teams if it's impossible to put them all near Chicago. So what explains Great Falls?

Default South Bend White Sox

The White Sox had a class A team in South Bend from 88-96. Does anyone remember why they moved out in 96? When I moved to to SB in 97 they were a Diamondbacks affiliate.

No one is perfect.
