Big League Advance, LLC (BLA) is an investment fund that provides minor league baseball players with the resources they need to help make their dream a reality. Players receive capital – not loans – and a player keeps the funds whether or not he ever makes it to the Major Leagues. For players who make it to the Major Leagues, we share in their success. We make our investment decisions and identify prospective players based on innovative analytics developed by our team.
Several of the BLA team members have either played in the minors or have worked in the industry, so we understand the toll it can take on a player’s life first-hand. BLA’s CEO and Founder, Michael Schwimer, was in the minors for three seasons before making it to the pros. During this time, he witnessed extreme sacrifices his fellow teammates had to make.
Working your way to the pros on little to no money and with no support system is no easy task. BLA wants to create ease in the process so talented players can focus on the end goal: improving and growing in the sport enough to reach the pros.
