Re: GCL Reds and Billings
Because of the unique living arrangements in Billings, the Reds and many other Pioneer League teams, send the college draftees and older players out west. Living with host families can be a bit delicate and they have had fewer problems with the older guys. Plus, I think the Reds like having their younger guys around Sarasota where there are more coaches, a central area for housing and a little more oversight. The players who are in the process of mastering English, also tend to stay in Florida.
