The agreement will allow the American Association to maintain its independence as it will not become an affiliated league

With this deal, the American Association will still set its own rules, but this move should only help develop the talent of the league Major League Baseball will now have access to video and technology to better spot players Teams like the Goldeyes will still be able to sell player contracts to Big League teams, but more players will be exposed

« They will still have the option of selling this contract to the New York Yankees, » Schaub said. « But in fact in this scenario the Baltimore Orioles can also step in and claim the rights to this player So there are a lot of details that need to come through.
