The Triple-A Rochester Red Wings will be the focus of a PBS documentary to be filmed this season and aired in 13 half-hour episodes in February 2010.
“What I like most is that you won’t necessarily have to be a baseball fan to enjoy the show because it will feature the everyday rollercoaster of emotions that our players endure during the season," Red Wings director of media relations Chuck Hinkel said. "We have some outstanding young men that will be playing here this season and this will give fans from all over a chance to develop a better rapport with them and follow them throughout their careers."
The series, entitled Minor Leagues, will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the Twins affiliate throughout the 2009 season. A portion of the proceeds from this project will support Rochester Mentors, an alliance of mentoring organizations in the Rochester area, committed to the safe and effective mentoring of youth in the region.
