Action in the Gulf Coast League.
Short update today as I am going over to Rent One Park in Marion to do a feature for Ballpark Digest.
Informative piece at the Palm Beach Post about the Gulf Coast League or as the players call it, “The Gulf Roast League.” I found interesting that “the average salary is $1,100 a month, but after clubhouse dues, living expenses and taxes, checks are only a few hundred dollars. Most players cram into apartments or rent rooms from host families.” Also of note, more than 80 percent of the Cardinals’ roster is Latin and younger than 21. You know though, how many that read this blog would do it for nothing?
