Baseball America is a magazine which covers baseball at every level, with a particular focus on up-and-coming players in high school, college, Japanmarker, and the minor leagues. It is currently published in the form of a bi-weekly newspaper, five annual reference book titles, a weekly podcast, and a website. It also regularly produces lists of the top prospects in the sport, and covers aspects of the game from a player-development point of view. The publication's motto is "Baseball news you can't find anywhere else."

History

Founded in 1981, Baseball America established itself as one of the top baseball-only publications and has since grown into a full-service media company. Founder Allan Simpson began writing the magazine from Canadamarker, originally calling it the All-America Baseball News. By 1983, Simpson moved the magazine to Durham, North Carolinamarker, after it was purchased by then-Durham Bulls owner Miles Wolff. Simpson has since resigned his position at the magazine, and the publication has been passed on to co-editors in chief John Manuel and Will Lingo. Today, Baseball America is home to a ten-man editorial staff. It also uses out-of-office correspondents for its print content.

The publication was once known for using statistics sparingly, and primarily emphasizing stats like wins and batting average when it did. Since the departure of Simpson, Baseball America has started using the newer batting average/on-base percentage/slugging percentage stat line when referring to hitters in place of the traditional batting average/home runs/runs batted in stat line.

Since , the Baseball America Minor League Player of the Year Award is given to a single minor league player judged as having had the most outstanding season.
