OFF THE FIELD REQUIREMENTS:
If you are familiar to how independent professional
baseball leagues traditionally operate, you will know that the role of a player requires
on the field and off the field responsibilities. To be an effective independent
professional baseball player requires a player to think of themselves
and their team as a business and in order to operate this business successfully
requires a lot of self initiative. We advise players to look at the opportunities we
provide as if they were starting a part time business that has the potential to make
a part time salary. As the league continues to grow these personal salary programs
furthermore, have the potential to evolve into more career fulltime opportunities.
The league has developed several programs that give
players the means to raise money for their teams as well as for their individual player
salaries. These programs requirements involve players to obtain a player sponsor to help
with the teams business funding needs. The more successful each player is in fulfilling
their player sponsorship requirements translates to better marketing campaigns for the
games. These marketing campaigns include effective TV, radio and/or newspaper advertising
which will certainly help bring more fans to the games. The more fans in the stands
translates to satisfied sponsors and more revenue for everyone involved i.e. players,
coaches and staff etc.
In addition to the players fiscal responsibilities mentioned above, other off the field
responsibilities are also required. These responsibilities involve player public
appearances at area schools, malls, little leagues and other civic organizations etc.
The idea is to think of your self as a marketing tool for your business. This mind set can
be compared to how NASCAR drivers and their teams operate.
We certainly want all players to have a very positive
experience playing in the NXBL. Every year more and more players are making their
mark in NXBL history. Players such as Danier Raeyes is the 1st and currently the
only player to hit a six run semi grand slam, Adam Newman holds the best one game
batting record which includes two homeruns, a triple and a single (just shy of the
cycle), and Ronnie Bradley holds the record for most stolen bases in one game at six.
These and many more records are being made each season and the possibility of more players
setting new records are very high. Are you ready to be the next NXBL record setter? The
time is now for you to take your game to the next level. The 2010 Season is HERE!!!
