Minor League Baseball Pay

Minor League Baseball Players are put on a pedestal. In reality, they are paid on par with the poverty level.

  • Fact: They only get paid during the season.
  • Fact: Some teams do not even help players find jobs during the off-season.
  • Fact: A lot of players have families that they need to support.
  • Fact: The annual salary for players at different levels is:
  • A: $6,000 annually
  • AA: $9,350 annually
  • AAA: $15,000 annually

For an individual, an annual income of $11,770 puts you at the national poverty line. For a family of four, it is $24,250. This means that the average minor league player lives below the poverty line.
