MiLB Article about long-standing minor-major league club relationships

Article: List of clubs with lengthy big league relationships

A geographic tidbit for High Minors via wikipedia:
Triple-A (or Class AAA)
"Triple-A teams are typically located in the largest metropolitan areas that do not have Major League Baseball (MLB) teams, such as Austin, Texas; Charlotte, North Carolina; Columbus, Ohio; El Paso, Texas; Las Vegas, Nevada; Louisville, Kentucky; and Norfolk, Virginia."

...and Portland, Nashville, Memphis, New Orleans, OKC, Omaha, Albuquerque, SLC, and Indianapolis.

For AA, spots are held in a few Alabama cities and still near "Braves turf" around the capital of Mississippi as well as Jacksonville.  I have to think that Alabama is more ready for the NFL for a weekend draw as compared to a daily MLB event, with places like Mobile, Montgomery, Huntsville and Birmingham.
And Little Rock area and San Antonio of the Texas League.

And please feel free to contribute your two cents with mine.
