The fourth season of Down on the Farm continues with a trip to Knute Nelson Memorial Park in Alexandria, Minnesota.
As a resident for nearly a year now, I realize Minnesota is a hockey state. However, baseball is surprisingly well-funded across the Land of 10,000 Lakes too. This is particularly validated when traveling back roads through small Minnesota communities that seem to encompass one hidden gem of a ballpark after another. Considering the harsh winters, the immaculate conditions of fields by May is also rather impressive.

Therefore, the NCAA should pay its college athletes more in order to stop the unfair exploitation of 19 and 20 year-old kids.
Collin, a student at the University of Tennessee, and Tyler a 2012 UT grad, are spending their summer in Arusha, Tanzania teaching at a school.
