Terrific segment on NPR this morning. Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller will use sabermetrics and their own experiences as baseball analysts to help the Sonoma Stompers this season.
Lindergh was one of the Baseball Prospectus writers who always drew large crowds at Politics & Prose (Second from left). Miller writes for Baseball Prospectus and lives in the Bay Area.
The two will pen a book that will chronicle their season.
Sonoma is in the Pacific Association, an independent league starting their third season.
Minor League Baseball (MiLB) is operated under the auspices of Major League Baseball (A, AA, AAA). Indie teams are not affiliated with MLB and can operate close to major league teams. The quality of baseball has been compared to AA and AAA in the MiLB.
Congrats Ben and Sam!
