For years, JJ Cooper has been the voice of independent baseball at “Baseball America”.  He has been able to give teams and players with unique stories the exposure they often do not receive due to attention being difficult to obtain.

Earlier this week, JJ spent an hour answering fans’ questions about the independent baseball leagues and covered topics such as:

  • MLB scouts at independent league games
  • The economics of new independent leagues and why the odds are stacked against new enterprises
  • Discusses the odds of certain former independent players of making a MLB roster
  • Much more
