If Memphis wins the PCL and Louisville wins the IL it would set up a VERY interesting Minor League World Series game.

Why? Basically because after ties were cut with Louisville as St. Louis' minor league affiliate, St. Louis took Memphis as their Triple A affiliate and more importantly took the 'Redbirds' name with them. The Louisville Redbirds were probably the most successful minor league franchise in history, and when the franchises started in Louisville in the early 80's, the team drew over 1,000,000 fans and averaged about 30,000 a game - which is astounding compared to what we even see in the majors these days.

More than a little history there, and still a hypothetical matchup, but the Bats are one win to getting to the IL championship series, and the Memphis Redbirds just completely a sweep to make the PCL championship series. It would be interesting to say the least. :
