For the thirteenth consecutive year, WFUV talks to the members of the Brooklyn Cyclones and the Staten Island Yankees in the Short Season Single-A Penn League about the trials and tribulations of being minor league ballplayers.

This week, Matt's Moro and Rosenfeld look at how players from around the country get to know one another and form a cohesive unit.
