On the Baseball

David Kaval, a Stanford MBA who used to work with Accenture and, and Amit Patel, another Stanford alum and former PR professional, have founded an independent professional baseball league, the Golden Baseball League. Intending to form 10-12 minor league teams in California, Southern Oregon, Western Arizona, and Northern Mexico, the league has attracted investment from Tim Draper, Pat Sajak, and a couple of Cisco execs. Kaval has also written a book about seeing baseball games in 30 ballparks in about as many days.

The Brooklyn Cyclones are also a relatively recent baseball project intended to promote the game and contribute to the economic development of a neighborhood. When was the last time you went to a minor league baseball game -- or a city team game?
