I will note that no where does it say that there will be NO new MiLB jobs (though with the contraction of MiLB, I wouldn't be surprised if this is the case), just that the Advanced course won't be held, so no one will be hired from there. If they have spots that need filled, they could reach out to guys who made it last year that weren't hired, or something of that sort.

I'll tell what I'm hearing from our local AA guys here--by guys I mean the higher ups for the team, not umps--I do not ump at this level.

They are concerned that they will not be able to field even 1/2 of the A, AA, AAA teams pre Covid. The reason being is that all of the 'daily players' that had/have no chance of ever going to the bigs were forced to get 'real jobs'. Now, you know these guys make between $6,000-$15,000 a YEAR--not the high picks obviously, but the average joe playing A, AA, AAA that makes up probably 3/4 of the team roster. They suspect that 3/4 of these guys will not come back after getting jobs that pay 5 to 10 times as much. Who would leave a job paying say, $30,000, a year WITH a chance to progress and move up, to return to a job paying $6,000 a year with no chance of moving up?

From what I'm hearing minor league baseball, as a whole, unfortunately could be in trouble for the next couple of years.

You make a good point. I should’ve said no new jobs out of pro school next year. They can always call up guys from the CPL or otherwise. Not to mention all the new hires from 2020 that didn’t get to work this year.
