Branch Rickey invented Major League Baseball’s farm system in the early 1930s while serving as manager of the St. Louis Cardinals. Since then, the Cardinals’ minor league affiliates continue to flourish.
Keith Law, of MLBDailyDish.com, deemed the Cardinals’ farm system as the best in all of baseball. And for good reason. The Cardinals’ ability to develop players is second to none.
(See Albert Pujols, Allen Craig, Matt Adams and Shelby Miller).
