  • Minor Leagues in Pre Draft Days

    Looking through I am suprised at how few minor league teams are afflilated with a major league team in the pre draft days. I was wondering how a player got signed to a contract by a baseball team and how did teams not afflilated with a major league team figure in to developing players for the major leagues?

    My basic understanding of it was that there was still a hierarchy of leagues. A player would go to an open tryout or be invited to try out with a team at one level and if he made it and was then sucessful his contract would get bought by a team in another league higher up and so on until a big league team would buy his contract. The big league team could still loan him out to a minor league team if he was struggling at the big league level.
    Lets Go Yankees, Valley Cats, Dutchmen, UT Spartans and ECU Pirates.

      Thanks for the explanation. Looking through players jumped around to different teams and leagues quite a bit. There are some players that played for 4 different teams in a season and players who were traded from one team to a different team in the same league.
