    Tramers needs to talk to some of the Crawdads and see if they would like to share their perspective of what it's like to work towards the MLB starting with the minors..

    How many cards are they given to sign when Bowman/Topps comes calling...

    (I remember when a certain Yankee/Twins Pitcher was a member on a board and showed all the cards Upper Deck sent him to sign..)

    Not many get cards here in low "A" and never see them giving out cards local . I give their parents cards that don't have which is common . With all the changes not sure what will happen later - Rangers bought team . Last night one player was talking with an agent -- didn't have one - we had invited out for supper- did take another out. We are limited at what / when we can do things with players . Most our team will sign regular - pitchers might not come over . We host two this year . They have a teacher to help with basic English . I think we had four players that had Bowman last year . Years ago Some players had G/F's help sign cards . I did see one trash can full of cards players didn't sign and another TTM NOT returned ..

    Nailed it. I wish there was more activity but what there is here is quality. Other boards just piss me off and give me a headache.

    If that.. I saw a behind the scenes with minor leaguers and most get about $800-1000 a month except for the ones that get drafted and get a bonus..

    One of my old bosses had his son drafted about 10 years ago, and the road to the majors is very difficult..
