Hello, I'm a 24 year-old law student with a passion for baseball. In particular, I have a passion for the Pirates and a passion for "prospecting." "Prospecting", to those who are unfamiliar with the term simply has to do with following baseball players as they travel through the minor league system of baseball as prospects, in an attempt to make the major leagues and make an impact for their major league team. The NBA development league and minor league system in hockey is somewhat similar, as is the concept of developing young players for a club in soccer, especially in Europe. However, the NFL really has no such system, and I believe the systems in other sports pale in comparison to the depth and complexity found in baseball. To me, that is what it makes "prospecting" so intriguing and engrossing.
Anyway, this blog is my attempt to write about the two aforementioned things I'm passionate about: Pirates and "prospecting." Hence the moniker "Buried Treasure" because I will attempt to shine a light on an aspect of baseball most people overlook or have no knowledge of, in this case specifically regarding the Pirates.
So please enjoy!
