Minor league baseball players to get housing in 2022

Members of the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers and other Minor League Baseball players will have their housing covered in 2022 according to its parent organization.

 

MLB made the announcement on Sunday as more minor league players have made their financial plight more known through social media. Players chasing their dreams in the minors are often paid well below minimum wage standards and have to spend the bulk of that on housing or find other means. ESPN's Jeff Passan says owners from all 30 Major League Baseball teams agreed unanimously to a plan to provide housing for certain minor leaguers. Exact plans to how that will be accomplished have not been announced.

 

Minor leaguers did see substantial raises in 2021, but that still was not enough to cover some basic necessities. The Timber Rattlers in the past have had a program to where local families could "Adopt a Rattler" for the season so players could have an affordable place to stay while in the Appleton area. Families were compensated with season tickets and other benefits.

Coaches helping out on transportation

Coaches are taking it upon themselves to get their kids to games amidst a country-wide bus driver shortage.

 

Last month, Algoma School District highlighted the addition of Dean Blahnik to its transportation staff. Blahnik has been instrumental to the success of Algoma's field events as they have had several medalists in recent years. You can now add "bus driver" to his list of duties.

 

“There was a need, and I want to do what I can for our youth and our school district. I wanted to be part of the solution,” said Blahnik in the district's social media post.

 

Earlier this fall, several school districts in northeast Wisconsin said they needed to reschedule or outright cancel sporting events due to the lack of available drivers.

It was 10-7 in the third quarter when the Packers would tack onto their lead, this time on a 12 yard pass from Rodgers to Aaron Jones to make it 17-7. The Bears would make it close in the fourth quarter when Darnell Mooney caught a five-yard pass from Fields to make it 17-14. The Packers would put the game away on the next drive when Rodgers took it in himself from six yards out to put a little extra ownership on the game. He finished with 195 yards passing and three total touchdowns.
