On this week’s episode of From The Back Fields to The Bronx, we decided to take the show in a little bit of a different direction. The founder of the website, Robert M Pimpsner, just wrapped up nearly 20 years of covering the New York Yankees farm system as a member of the media.
Pimpsner covered his last game for the website last Saturday when he was at the Hudson Valley Renegades game against Brooklyn. What was in his mind before the game, during the game, and after the game and when did it hit him that the era was coming to an end?
During this podcast, you will hear Pimpsner reflect on his favorite moments and favorite interviews he has ever done covering the system,. how minor league baseball has changed since he started covering it, and how Pinstriped Prospects changed the way minor league baseball is covered. In addition, he discuss how he feels minor league baseball can improve.
Then, Pimpsner and Keeler go over the process of how Pinstriped Prospects is debuting their new top 50 prospect list that will come out over the next few weeks. Pimpsner goes over the formula of how the rankings were made, any possible surprises, and how the Yankees depth in their system is still strong even after the deadline deals.
Thank you Rob for everything you have done for this website and hopefully we can provide the same great content that this site is known for as you go succeed as whatever you decide to do next.
