Anyone that is interested in some insight into the life and times of a minor leaguer should read the article in SI last week written by a former minor league pitcher with the Angels. He has a book out call Odd Man Out and this is an excerpt from the book. Mrs. AZBF said she would think about a new vocation if she were a ball player. Good stuff.

Good read, Az. With the recent discussion on this board about minor league salaries, I guess I was surprised to learn that the salary of a low minor leaguer is only $835 a month. I knew it was low, but didn't realize it was that low.

Even the guys in Double-A don't make that much money.. somewhere between 1800-2200 a month.

Are those numbers over 12 months, or do they only pertain to a season?

season and remember that the 835 a month was in 2002 but it hasn't risen much.
