    Signing bonus followed by annual chump change till you make a Big League roster.

    I was speaking to this a month or so ago in another thread. Unless you're a top round pick (or get a bonus way above slot), going pro sucks. And it's why a lot of really good players are out of professional baseball in just a couple years. Unless you're fast tracking through the levels, some guys can't afford to be a professional baseball player.

    And the lifestyle is miserable.

    Unless you are a top pick in the draft, the only thing the vast majority of basebal draft picks get is an "opportunity". But if you can't make a relatively quick impression, most can't afford to stick around very long and they won't keep anyone around very long.

    $1300 for Low A $1500 at High A, a month during the season, only. You pay clubhouse dues out of that.

    For AAA, the monthly salary is $2150 per month and it goes up to $2400 the second year and $2700 the third year.

    A player must be placed on the team's 40-man roster or be subject to the Rule 5 Draft at the end of his fourth season (if signed at age 19 or higher) or fifth season (if signed at age 18 or lower).

    Baseball is considered a "hobby" by federal guidelines... although there is a class action law suite out there,, no one expects it to go anywhere.

    Players only get paid during the season-- not even during spring training. So they are looking at getting paid about 4 months of the year. They typically pay room and board- around $300 a month - in the lower leagues the team may own a hotel or apartments.. otherwise they stay with a host family. They have to pay for their own meals. Its not hard to do the math and see that there is very little left during the month- but also little time to spend it anyway.
