The Winnipeg Goldeyes are the only Canadian based team in the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball. They travel as far as Texas, and regularly to North Dakota and Iowa from Manitoba. It's a life of bus trips, card games, knee treatments, winning, losing and baseball. A lot of baseball.

Just in August 2012 alone the Goldeyes played 20 games on the road. Some of these players have made it to the majors for a short period and been sent back down again. Some never have, and are young enough to still dream of it, or old enough to wonder about a new career after baseball.

This video documents two games in Sioux City, Iowa against the Explorers.
