During the regular season a Major League Baseball needs to have 25 players on their roster with some Double Header exceptions in which they are allowed to have an extra player called up for one or both games of the Double Header, the Major League Roster is increased to 40 players as of September 1 and the 40-man roster remains in effect as the Active Roster until the Postseason begins at which point the Active Roster is decreased back to 25 players.

On a standard, regular season roster -- it happens to be 25 players.

Rosters expand to 40 players after September first...

The makeup of these rosters (how many position players and how many pitchers) are determined by management of the team (coaches, the manager and the general manager).

The Yankees, along with all other MLB teams are made up of a 40 man roster. A team keeps a 25 man roster of players that are eligible to play anytime during the regular season. The 25 men and 15 others such as minor leaguers and players on the 15 day disabled list make up a teams 40 man roster. Click on the link below to see the Yankees current roster.

Teams make their first roster cuts on Sept. 1st, down to a maximum of 75 players. Roster cuts are down to 53 players on Sept. 5th.

1,696 players make it pro. Say 53 players make the nfl team roster and 53 x 32 = 1,696

There are 53 players on each team's roster. There are 32 teams in the league. That would add up to 1696 players on NFL rosters.
