Minor League Realignment and the American League

TR Robertson – For many Spring signals the beginning of one of their favorite past-times, sitting back and watching their favorite baseball team in action, either watching on T.V. or sitting in the stands. After all, what could beat a bag of peanuts, a cold beverage and a hot dog slathered in your favorite condiment and relaxing as you enjoy what many feel is “America’s favorite pastime”. Part II features the teams of the American League and their Minor League affiliates. Take a careful look at each Major League team and notice the clever names many of the teams have. Many are named after unusual features of the cities they represent; many are named after the parent club; many are named just to be unusual and stand out from the crowd. After all, who could forget the Akron Rubber Ducks, the Montgomery Biscuits or the Rocket City Trash Pandas. For the minor league teams, DSL refers to Dominican Summer League, AZL refers to Arizona League and GCL refers to Gulf Coast League.
