Thanks to Joho Maps  {Click here}.

This starts a new series.   I want to post one Major League Baseball team each week,  or so.   There are 30 ball clubs in the majors,  so I started this series even before Spring Training has begun,  because I want to get in all the clubs before the summer is over.   I will do the teams alphabetically,  backwards,  so that the posts will show up in alphabetical sequence in the new Baseball Clubs/Farm Teams category I made. 

So that means up next will be the Toronto Blue Jays,  then the Texas Rangers.

On the main map is shown the location and logo of the featured MLB team,  and their 6 minor league affiliates.   These 6 levels are… Triple-A  [AAA].   The 2nd highest level,  Double-A  [AA].    Single-A ball,  with it’s three gradations  [Advanced-A A;  and A-Short Season].   The lowest rung,  the Rookie/ Instructional Leagues [R]. 

In the upper right hand corner is a block of text that includes the ball club’s 2008 divisional record,  and their 2008 average attendance figures.   Below that are the major league ball club’s 6 minor league affiliates.   The teams’ cap insignias are shown,  along with league,  level,  and length of time the minor league ball club has been part of the Major League team’s farm system.  

At the bottom is a map that shows the other MLB clubs in the the division,  in this case,  The National League East Division.  At the bottom of this section is shown the featured MLB team’s 2009 jerseys,  caps, and logos.

For the 5th straight season,  Minor League Baseball set an attendance record.   See this article,  from the Minor League Baseball site,  {Click here}.

Here is a list of minor leagues’ average attendance,  per game,  in 2008.  I used this article {Click here}, from Street & Smith’s Sports Business Daily.
