One opinion believes that good pitching and good defense will make a winning Major League Baseball team.

One opinion believes a Number 1 Starting Pitchers, a good selection of great Relievers in the Bullpen, solid Number 2 and 3 Starting Pitchers, strong infield defense, speedy Outfielders and a good offense that features the leadoff and the Number 2 hitter having speed and the hitters batting in the third through and including 6 spots will make a winning team.

Another opinion believes teamwork is the essential ingredient to making a winning Major League Baseball team.

All baseballs for official game use from Little League to the Major Leagues are the same. They are the same diameter, weight and materials. The differences are largely manufacturing differences. An official Major League Baseball goes through a more rigorous quality control process before it is accepted than a Little League ball. You will see flaws like wrinkles in the leather, stitching that is not uniform is higher (even within the same lot of balls) or flat spots on the ball often in Little League or Babe Ruth League balls that you would be hard pressed to find on a Official Minor or Major League Baseball. There are certain youth Little Leagues that will use a reduced injury ball that has a core that makes it somewhat spongy and this would be the only exception. Bottom line is all real baseballs are the same.

The lowest salary a Major League player can be paid is $300,000 per year. The highest paid player is A-Rod who makes about $30 million dollars a year plus endorsements.
