The Minor Leagues

The Minor Leagues

Each Major League team has many Minor League teams that focus on developing players to play for them one day. There are many different levels of the minor leagues.

The first and lowest level of the Minor Leagues is the Rookie level. The rookie level is where most highschool draft picks spend their first season. Some teams call this rookie team "extended spring training" or "extended" for short. They call it this because it usually takes place at the Major League teams Spring Training Facility. A lot of the time players from other Minor League that need to rehab an injury will go back to extended because there are usually a couple of trainers that can help rehab the injured player rather than one trainer with limited equipment and facilities. Sometimes even Big Leaguers will rehab there. Rookie level games are usually free for fans to attend.

The next level in the Minor Leagues is Short Season A. This is where most of the college draft picks will go for their first season. They call it Short Season because it is short compared to the others. The team only plays for half the year because it is filled with the new draftees who don't come in until June, while the rest of the Minor Leagues start Spring Training in March.
