Well, let's reword the question first... A, AA, and AAA minor league players are usually already drafted by a team. In my experience, I would say that probably around 10% of minor leaguers ever have a chance at The Show. That's just the chance. Even fewer make it there and produce successful careers and end up being vested and retiring. Of the thousands of high school, college, and unaffiliated players, probably about 3 percent of those drafted or signed ever make the big leagues. Hope this helps.

No, a handful of polished college players go directly to the majors after being drafted, and also most of the Japanese players in the majors never played in the (American) minors.

Only about 10 percent of the players in the minors will make it to the majors. Players in the minors only make between $3,000 to $7,500 per 5-month season.

there's no minimum, in fact most minor league players retire before even reaching the majors.

A total of 21 players have gone directly to the majors when being drafted from the amateur draft. It is very rare considering hundreds of draft picks happen each year and has been happening since 1965.

A baseball player's salary will not change from the Majors to the Minors if he has a Major League contract. There are minor league contracts for those players.

he was not drafted there was no draft in his time he was sold by the orioles to the red sox

This may or may not be the most recent, but Jim Abbott never played in the minors, he came straight out of college. Also, most of the Japanese players currently in the majors came directly from Japan and never spent any time in the (American) minors.

You must be at least 18 to be drafted, though it may take a few years before the player progresses through the minor league level, eventually making it to the majors.

he was drafted by the California Angels but never reached the majors

When a minor league player gets called up to the majors, they will get paid by the major league team. Many times, the minor league team is owned by the major league team.

major league baseball began its first draft in 1965 therefor giving the team the option of sending the player down for further instruction. The first player was mike adamson of usc in 1967 going to Baltimore orioles. the team with the most players going straight to the majors is the san Diego padres the most popular being Dave winfield. correction Oakland also had three players.

As early as 1884 two "black" players, the Walker brothers played for Toledo in the American Association, considered a "major" league at the time. There was no "official" discrimination against Black players, however, but there was defacto segregation until Jackie Robinson joined the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947 opening the majors to Black players.

The average career is 5 years, players usually come up to the majors between age 22 and 25, and a good solid career ends around age 37.

About 5.6% make it to the ncaaa college and from there about 10% make it to the majors.

No. Pitchers can re-enter once in Juniors and above, but there is no re-entry as a pitcher in Majors and below in Little League.

Yes, Manny was the 1st round draft choice of the Cleveland Indians in 1991.

a senior little league is for those with expirence and talent The above answer is wrong. The difference between Senior Little League and Little League is age. Little League is normally what is said when discussing the parent organization of all divisions of Little League Baseball International. The divisions of Little League Baseball are divided between Tee ball, Minors, Majors, Junior, Senior and Big Leagues. Little League International also offers Softball, and Challenger. The age configurations for Little League is, depending on what the local leagues Board of Directors and the local bylaws state normally are, 5 -6 for tee ball, 7 through 11 in Minors, 9 -12 in Majors, 12 -14 in Juniors, 14 - 16 in Seniors, and 16 - 18 in Big League. The ages overlap to allow local leagues to have some flexibility in making their local league work the best. Age is the only difference between those that play in Little League (Majors and younger divisions) and Senior League. How who play in which divisions, with the overlapping ages, is as varied as there are Chartered Little Leagues. Some leagues have strict rules saying ages determine which division players play in, and others have a system that allows for age and experience and ability to determine which division the players play in. There are some hard and fast rules that Little League International has, such as all 12 year olds must play in Majors, unless a waiver is granted allowing them to play in Minors. Also 8 year olds and younger are not allowed to play in Majors. But Little League International allows for flexibility to meet the needs of all players. Little League International also offers Boys and Girls Softball, also with divisions determined by age and ability. There is also a Challenger League offered for differently-abled players to participate in. Children in wheel chairs, on crutches, and with other challenges play baseball. Some of the players are assisted by other players, and some aren't. It is the most rewarding program that I have ever been involved with. I am a 32 year volunteer with Little League program. I have had 2 sons, and 5 grandsons play Little League.

Honestly, I don't understand why the word 'purchase' is used because the major league club pays the salaries of all their minor league players. It would seem to me instead of saying 'purchased the minor league contract' they would say 'signed to a major league contract'. Regardless, this is done because a minor league contract would not be valid in the major leagues. First of all the player will be paid more for being in the majors so that is one consideration. Second, there is a reserve clause in minor league contracts that states that the team 'reserves the rights' to the player's services after the season ends. The reserve clause is invalid in major league contracts. So the minor league contract becomes null and void and the player signs a new contract to play in the majors.

in the majors? around 750 players, not counting the guys on the 40-man roster, which play in the minors, now, for all of baseball, including the 6 minor league teams for each major league club, around 4,500 including the major leaguers

A player can be on a farm team if he is drafted or signed; via free agency; or demoted if he is already in the majors.

Although, several Black players played Major League Baseball in the early days, it was an unwritten rule against Black players in MLB until 1942 when the Brooklyn Dodgers signed and played Jackie Robinson, which opened the door for Blacks in the Majors.

Near 23 % of baseball players in the colliegate level manage to play ball in the profesional level. The above answer is utterly ridiculous. The actual number of college ballplayers that end up playing in the majors is no where near 23%. It is not even 1%.

Nonexistant. The American League began play as a major league in 1901. Prior to that, it was known as the Western League and was not considered part of the Majors.
