Your daily discussion spot for minor league and MLB rookie talk. Also, why is there a tornado picture?

The Jordan, Iowa, F-5 tornado of June 13th, 1976

Good afternoon everyone and welcome to the Minor League Ball Gameday discussion thread for Tuesday, June 13th, 2017.

Round Two of the 2017 MLB Draft will begin at 1 PM Eastern we’ll be here live-blogging all the picks. There are still minor league games being played and major league rookies in action of course, so here’s your regular discussion spot for those topics.

Why is there a photo of a tornado today? Because today is June 13th and on that day in 1976 my parents were taking me to summer camp. I was eight years old. On the way, we saw this monster: the Jordan, Iowa, F5 Tornado.

Here’s some video.
