Amazing in-depth view at the life of minor leaguers by Mike Ashmore "I know people back in my small town of Iowa think I make more than what I do. It’s different than most minor league sports. In minor league hockey, they get paid pretty well. Minor league basketball gets paid pretty decent, too. But there’s so many baseball players and there’s so many levels, that it’s hard to negotiate it. If you don’t like it, they’ll find somebody else because there’s tons of players out there."
