Lack of affiliations leads to misperception
Kansas City Star - Aug 4, 2003
Bradford Doolittle counters the argument "that independent leagues are the lowest rungs on the baseball ladder" in this week's excellent Northern League Notebook. Using the Jose Lima's seemingly seamless jump from the Atlantic League to the American League as anecdotal evidence, he also points to numbers crunched by Baseball Prospectus to indicate that the quality of Northern League baseball is somewhere between A and AA ball. As someone who has seen hundreds of professional baseball games at various levels, that's about where I'd put the league as well.
