Rome Braves

Great to spend a Friday night in Rome, GA with the Rome Braves, the Class A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves.

Very nice people and a complete gameday experience on a hot night.


AutoZone Park

Had the pleasure to visit another one of our country's great Minor League Baseball ballparks this weekend.

AutoZone Park in Memphis, home of the Memphis Redbirds.

Very fan friendly, great food and the workers were all very professional.

Baseball Players Get a Raise

Major League Baseball players earning the minimum will get a raise.   It was announced that the Major League Baseball minimum salary in the 2011 Championship Season will be $414,000. It is a $14,000 raise over the 2010 minimum.

Article VI of the 2007-2011 MLB Collective Bargaining Agreement (referred to as the “Basic Agreement”) deals with player salaries.  Specifically, Section B of the Article contemplates Minimum Salary.  The 2011 season is the last one that will be governed under the current Basic Agreement.  Section B calls for a minimum salary “at the 2010 rate per season plus a cost of living adjustment, rounded to the nearest $500, provided that the cost of living adjustment shall not reduce the minimum salary below $400,000.”  

Minor Leage players will also get a small bump.  Minor League minimum salary for players on their clubs’ 40-man rosters is set at $67,300 (up from 2010′s $65,000), but only players who have at least one year of being on the 40-man under their belt or at least one day of MLB service will be bound by the salary floor.  For Minor League players on the 40-man roster who do not fit into either category (i.e. players just named to their teams’ 40-man rosters and without any MLB service), their minimum salary will be $33,700 (up from 2010′s $32,500).
