Minor League Baseball
MINOR LEAGUE BASEBALL is a hierarchy of professional baseball leagues in the Americas that compete at levels below Major League Baseball (MLB) and provide opportunities for player development and a way to prepare for the major leagues. All of the minor leagues are operated as independent businesses. Most are members of the umbrella organization known as MINOR LEAGUE BASEBALL (MILB), which operates under the Commissioner of Baseball within the scope of organized baseball . Several leagues, known as independent baseball leagues , do not have any official links to Major League Baseball. Except for the Mexican League , teams in the organized minor leagues are generally independently owned and operated but are directly affiliated with one major league team through a standardized Player Development Contract (PDC). These leagues also go by the nicknames the "farm system ," "farm club," or "farm team(s)" because of a joke passed around by major league players in the 1930s when St. Louis Cardinals general manager Branch Rickey formalized the system, and teams in small towns were "growing players down on the farm like corn." Major League Baseball and Minor League Baseball teams may enter into a PDC for a two- or four-year term. At the expiration of a PDC term, teams may renew their affiliation, or sign new PDCs with different clubs, though many relationships are renewed and endure for extended time periods

Major League Baseball
MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL (MLB) is a professional baseball league, the oldest of the four major professional sports leagues in the United States and Canada . A total of 30 teams play in the National League (NL) and American League (AL), with 15 teams in each league. The NL and AL operated as separate legal entities from 1876 and 1901 respectively. After cooperating but remaining legally separate entities since 1903, the leagues merged into a single organization led by the Commissioner of Baseball in 2000. The organization also oversees Minor League Baseball , which comprises about 240 teams affiliated with the Major League clubs. With the World Baseball Softball Confederation , MLB manages the international World Baseball Classic tournament. Baseball's first professional team was founded in Cincinnati in 1869, 30 years after Abner Doubleday supposedly invented the game of baseball. The first few decades of professional baseball were characterized by rivalries between leagues and by players who often jumped from one team or league to another. The period before 1920 in baseball was known as the dead-ball era ; players rarely hit home runs during this time. Baseball survived a conspiracy to fix the 1919 World Series , which came to be known as the Black Sox Scandal
