Job Description for Baseball Player, Minor League (AAA)

The level of competition for a baseball player, minor league (AAA) is very high, and many players are being groomed for call-up to the major leagues. AAA baseball players are normally under contract with a major league team, but they work for the ownership of the minor league affiliate.

At this high level of minor leagues, a player who is trying to get to the majors for the first time will typically be asked to put a final polish on the skills needed to have to be an effective major leaguer. For hitters, this can involve focusing on pitch recognition to help the player hit the more complex offerings seen from major league pitching. For pitchers, they may be asked to refine their mechanics and develop better control and command of the strike zone.

Most minor league baseball players at the AAA level began dedicating themselves to the sport at a very young age, typically playing through grade school, high school, and college at the highest levels of competition. Because their contracts are owned by major league teams, AAA ballplayers are subject to the same rules as their counterparts in the big leagues, including requirements to submit for random drug testing. AAA baseball players are actively training and playing with their respective teams from early spring through fall. Extensive travel, usually via bus, is a major part of the job as well.
