Life of a Minor Leaguer

Life of a Minor Leaguer

Simon Rosenblum-Larson joins the Edge of Sports podcast to talk about the harsh realities that minor league players face.


On this week’s show, we talk to Simon Rosenblum-Larson, a minor league baseball player with the Tampa Bay Rays about the ugly realities of playing Minor League Baseball. We discuss the intricacies of organizing workers in minor league clubhouses and what it takes to work with international baseball players.

We also got Choice Words about the latest news with Brittney Griner’s case. We have Just Stand Up awards for the people advocating loudly for Griner’s release, and Just Sit Down awards for those who have decided to keep quiet on the matter. Also in this episode, we’ve got a Kaepernick Watch about how owners are trying to reinvent history as it relates to the blackballed quarterback. All this and more on this week’s show!
