There are 30 Major League Baseball teams. Each has 25 players,

so there are 750 players in the Major Leagues. From September 1

through the end of the regular season (usually the first Sunday in

October) teams can expand their roster to 40 players, so during

that period there can be 1,200 Major League Baseball players. Teams

also have 10 players on their A, AA and AAA minor league
