John Feinstein: Baseball's Minor Leagues

Sports writer and author John Feinstein explores the long bus rides, low pay and inner struggles of minor league baseball players striving to make the leap to the majors.

The pay is low, the bus rides are long and no one wants to spend his whole career there. But hundreds of players return year after year to baseball's minor leagues in hopes of one day being called up to the majors. Amid an effort to unionize college athletes and an ongoing debate over grooming players for the pros, Kojo explores life in the farm team system that feeds the nation's favorite pastime.
