Muckdogs on MLB Chopping Block?
Written by Dan Fischer on November 18, 2019
Major League Baseball is proposing to severe its parent club ties with 42 minor league teams across the county.
The New York Times is reporting today that the Batavia Muckdogs are on the list.
It is part of an effort by M.L.B. to overhaul the lower minor leagues and the way players are developed to make it to the bigs.
Baseball has been sending signals of a minor league re-do for the past several months but this is the first time that actual teams have been named.
Also on the proposed chopping block is the Auburn Double Days, who like Batavia, are part of the New York Penn League.
Attempts to reach officials with the Muckdogs were unsuccessful. The cellphone for Muckdogs General Manager Brendan Kelly is no longer in service.
