Addion, TX (PressExposure) March 10, 2009 -- While there are many services to help professional baseball players with off-the-field questions when a player is with an "affiliated" professional team, there are few resources tailored to the independent professional baseball player. A new free report by IndependentMinorLeagueBaseball.com helps to answer some of the biggest questions asked by active and retired independent baseball players alike.
Matt Mc Dermott, founder of IndependentMinorLeagueBaseball.com, said, "After having spoken with many independent baseball players, I noticed three recurring questions from the active players and three recurring questions from recently-retired players. Many of them have had to alter their lives dramatically, or had to forego potential new career paths, simply because they could not find answers to their questions."
The report answers these three questions for active players: 1) What can a player do for work during the off-season? 2) What happens if a player gets released during spring training or during the season? 3) How can an independent player transfer credits to a school near where he played pro baseball during the summer?
Retired independent baseball players can find answers to: 1) How to become a coach in the independent professional leagues? 2) How to find a career path after baseball which is at least as challenging as baseball was? 3) How can a retired player keep in touch with other retired independent players?
"I wanted to give some simple solutions and encouragement to those who have these questions," Mc Dermott said. "If a player finds this information useful then I want him to feel welcome to send it to his teammates, friends in other independent leagues, or anyone else who might benefit from the information."
