ehh, no USAirways737, a MLB team DRAFTS them, THEN they go into the farm system (Class A, AA, AAA, International Leagues, etc) and they work their way up the ladder and hopefully they get called up to play in the MLB. Some players spend their entire lives in the minor leagues (watch the movie Bull Durham). I watched most of the NY/NJ Hitmen vs. Las Vegas Outlaws game. Nothing extraordinary, I was hoping for some big hits on punts but the players just ran by the punt returner and waited till after he caught the ball and then softly tackled him. They could have just ran right into him right as he was catching the ball (no fair catches in XFL). It was good entertainment though.
