The Atlantic League is the highest level of professional baseball other than the Major Leagues. Atlantic League players are all highly experienced professionals, "Major League Ready", having progressed through the developmental levels (Single-A, Double-A, Triple-A). Approximately 40% of Atlantic League players have Major League service time.
The Atlantic League is also the only professional baseball league in an active expansion mode. The League plans to expand from eight to twelve teams over the next few years. The new expansion teams will join the existing teams which are currently located in the major metropolitan markets of New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, and Houston (in some cases with multiple clubs within a metropolitan market area). In addition to major US markets, several international locations are under consideration.
