Resolution expresses the sense of Congress to save Minor League Baseball

Washington, D.C. — Congressman Fred Keller (R-PA), a founding member of the Protect Minor League Baseball Task Force, today announced the introduction of a resolution he has co-sponsored to protect the current minor league structure.


The bipartisan resolution expresses the sense of Congress that Major League Baseball should maintain the current minor league structure rather than proceed with its plan to eliminate 42 minor league clubs, including the Williamsport Crosscutters and the State College Spikes.

On the resolution, Congressman Fred Keller made the following statement:


“I am proud to co-sponsor this resolution and stand up for the Williamsport Crosscutters, State College Spikes, and the other 40 minor league clubs slated for elimination under Major League Baseball’s realignment plan.


“Minor league baseball in Pennsylvania’s 12th Congressional District, and across the country, provides affordable, family-friendly entertainment and gives back to the local community.


“As a member of the bipartisan ‘Save Minor League Baseball Task Force’ I look forward to continuing to work in a constructive fashion to save the Crosscutters, Spikes, and other minor league baseball teams from elimination.”
