ESPN had a very good segment on life for one young man in the Independent League. The player’s name is Josh Faiola. Josh was with the Lake Erie Crushers of the Frontier League.
The short program spells out some of the experiences that Josh went through, in addition to why he picked baseball as a career and a life style - as short as it was. Josh also gives a lot of credit to a very supportive wife and those in the community that he shared living space with.
I should point out that the Lake Erie Crushers of the Frontier League are one of the better life style experiences for players choosing Independent League careers. In any respect, this program is worth watching.
ESPN E:60 Glory Days is the program that you’ll want to click on.
