September baseball is the time when AAA baseball comes to the big leagues.
There is a huge difference between AAA and the Major Leagues.
I don't believe there has ever been a bigger margin between the quality of the big league player and the AAA player.
Granted, these AAA players are trying to make a good impression on the manager and the team and maybe this puts unnecessary pressure on the called-up player, but there is a huge discrepancy between these two leagues.
Pitchers become throwers and hitters become swingers.
There is one aspect that I do enjoy about September baseball.
Many players collect their 1st major league hit during this time.
Cutting a player's 1st major league hit is a blast. The look on the player's face is priceless and there are always great reaction shots from the teammates.
It is just such a great feeling when this memorable event occurs.
There was a "first major league hit" in tonight's game/telecast.
This was the best moment of the AAA game we televised tonight.
