Many decades ago, as a student at MSU, I had the option to return to the Industrial League in Adrian, Michigan or play in the Basin League in South Dakota. Then it was a long train ride to South Dakota. One year in the Basin League, 40 players later played in the MLB.
Our team had three future MLB players Ron Perranoski, Dick Howser and Howie Bedell.
Bob Gibson was one of the opposing pitchers. "his spin rate" was not a term we used. Aspirin tablet was my definition.
Morale of the story: "enjoy the experiences, they last a lifetime"!
