For the thirteenth consecutive year, WFUV talks to the members of the Brooklyn Cyclones and the Staten Island Yankees in the Short Season Single-A Penn League about the trials and tribulations of being minor league ballplayers. The long bus rides, the low pay, 76 games in 80 days. This is a look into Life in the Minors: How the Other Half Lives.
This week, Mike Pawell and Anthony Pucik examine the rituals, superstitions and quirks that help the ballplayers.
Hear Life in the Minors every week on WFUV's One on One, Saturday's at 2:50pm.
