GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO)-- Marv Foley has spent some time in the Rockies' farm system, as a roaming catching coordinator throughout the minor leagues and also as the manager of the AA-affiliate, the Tulsa Drillers.
With that kind of experience on his resume, Foley can certainly pick out a talented player. However, the savvy scout can also attest to the importance that a supportive fan base has on a minor league team.
"It's always good to come to the park knowing that you're going to have fans come out and cheer for you," Foley said. "[Players] don't like to come to the park and play in front of only 100-150 people. They like for people to come out and enjoy watching them play."
