Bob Wirz runs his independent baseball blog at IndyBaseballChatter.com. IndependentBaseball.net wants to thank Bob for his hospitality last week in Connecticut when meeting for lunch before the Christmas Holidays. It is always a great time to get together with those who genuinely care about the independent baseball industry.
Bob writes a for-pay extensive column which frequently gives often-overlooked players and front office members recognition for their accomplishments. This column is much greater in detail, covering all 8 of the independent baseball leagues and information on some of the Winter League action as it relates to independent baseball players. He also tracks the former independent baseball players who have subsequently played in the affiliated organizations, including the Major Leagues.
