The Yankees' link with the Netherlands since 1981
The Netherlands: 2011 World Champions baseball, beating Cuba twice (4-1 and 2-1)!!!!!
Theres an awesome Van's outlet store there that always has their shoes on sale. I got my pair for less than $20 and the retail price is about $45
Figure I should chime in here. Favorite MiLB team is the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. I mean, I love seeing all of the prospects for the Brewers that are down there (I'm more interested in the lower level guys, since they don't get talked about as much). The stadium is pretty close to me (I've driven past it a few times), and I could go there if I wanted, I've just never found the time to go to a game there. Thankfully, their games are broadcast on TWC Sports 32 on TV, so I get to watch the games anyway.
When the Sea Dogs (Portland, Maine) became the AA affiliate for the Boston Red Sox back in 2003, they put in a replica of the Green Monster in the left field of Hadlock Field. I've been there a number of times in recent years, even though it's over three hours from my home (makes for a long day). Still, it's a decent place to watch a ball game though a little dated.
I've been to games pitched by Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz, and I've followed Dustin Pedroia, Jed Lowrie, Hanley Ramirez, Jacoby Ellsbury, and Kevin Youkilis as they made their way to the majors. Little wonder I follow the Sox right now (along with the Brewers too).

I guess I would say the Pawtucket Paw Sox, although I really don't follow much MiLB. I will say my favorite MiLB mascot though, undoubtedly has to be the Biscuit from the Montgomery Biscuits lol. That dude is awesome.
