Our goal is to help minor league players make it to the Major Leagues by providing economic security. We offer a financially beneficial platform for both players and investors.
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.
BLA was founded in 2016 by former Major League pitcher Michael Schwimer. Before making his Major League debut in 2011, Michael spent three seasons in the minors, where he witnessed the sacrifices teammates made to stay in the game and achieve their dream of Major League success.
