Squirrels-focused, but so much more

Great look inside the Flying Squirrels (on and off the Diamond) that adjusted well to providing quality content despite the lost 2020 season. I believe any baseball fan - not just a Squirrels or Giants fan - would enjoy this.

Neat insights

A neat look into everything that encompasses the world of minor league baseball. Highly recommend.
