Minor League Baseball On Facebook: Carolina League

AllFacebook’s look at the Facebook pages of Minor League Baseball teams continues with the advanced class-A Carolina League.

Class A is the lowest level in the minor-league system, where the least advanced prospects start out, but full-season class-A leagues are made up of more advanced prospects than short-season leagues, and advanced class-A leagues are obviously at the top of the tier.
