Midwest League 1999

Average Team Ages

This page compares the ages of the players assigned the teams of the Midwest League on opening day of the 1999 season.


Year after year, the Angels' affiliate in our league is significantly older than average and the Twins farmhands are significantly younger. In 1997, the Kernels' opening day roster averaged 22.1 years; the Wizards averaged 21.1. Last summer, the CR was 22.0; FTW 21.1. This summer it's Cedar Rapids at 22.5; the new Twins farm, Quad City, is 21.3. This is a pattern. It's significant. It tells something about the way the systems develop players.
