Playing minor league baseball is not exactly a way to get rich. For the bonus babies or the players who are rushed to the big leagues, playing minor league ball is a necessity among their already financially secure future, but for late rounders chasing a dream, many look to the offseason and pick up odd jobs to help support themselves. St Louis Cardinals prospect Chris Swauger, a 26th round pick in 2008, is among those who go to work. In the story link below, Swauger talks about his time as a substitute teacher during the offseason, previous jobs he’s had, and the story looks at the offseason jobs of other minor leaguers as well. It’s a good read.
