Every summer I take a vacation to New Mexico and West Texas and always catch a Pecos League game . Small time but very enjoyable.

Debuting Tuesday night at 9:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1, the six-episode series "The Pecos League" will give you an inside look at the players that make this league tick.

This speaks for itself................!:o

I've really enjoyed the Fox Sports "Pecos League" show. Interesting insights into the very bottom level of professional baseball. My only complaint is that the show primarily focuses on the Trinidad (CO) Triggers instead of several teams.

Ya it would of been good to hear something about the Alpine Cowboys. The only team not owned by the league. Stopping there on July 4th to catch a double header on my way to New Mexico.

Since us Canadians don't get FS1, I missed this series. I had seen a commercial for it, I hope someone posted it on Youtube.

I realize that leagues come and go, but I'm curious why OSC hasn't given the Pecos league its own section under "Independent Leagues." Too unstable? Quality of play is too low?

I believe it's in its 4th season. But it may not be considered pro. Players receive about $50 per week and room & board. Most stay with host families. I attended a double header recently on July 4th in Alpine,Tx . After the first game the players themselves got the field ready for the second game. After that the players came up and shook hands and drank beer with fans , awaiting a fireworks display.

MLB is getting sued for minor league salaries failing to meet minimum wage. If the MLB loses this suit, these guys will be toast.

Maybe , but these players could be considered contract labor as opposed to employees.
