Welcome. To those of you who read our site on a daily basis, thank you very much. This is a hobby for us, and we’d probably do it regardless of how many people read this stuff every day, it is rewarding to see people learning from our content and enjoying it as well.
If you read here frequently, you’re probably familiar with our daily “Minor League Minutes” column. It’s basically just a link dump that we use every morning to catch you up with all of “yesterday’s” action. So for instance, when you read yesterday morning’s “Minor League Minutes: 7/16/19“, the goal was to help you catch up on news from 7/15/19.
Now we’re going to introduce you to a new daily article. We’re preliminarily going to call this the “Morning Roll Call”, as I’m sure you read in the title. The goal is to give you information on all of “today’s” games, starting pitchers, and maybe highlight a few hitters who are on hot streaks at the moment. You’ve probably seen us post our “Morning Roll Calls” on Twitter, this should just help us to keep better track of that kind of stuff on the website.
So, without further ado, here’s our first go at our daily slate:
