California League Iron Ons

The California League is a 'Class A Advanced' minor league baseball league which operates throughout the Pacific Ocean coast state of California. Before 2002, it was classified as a "High-A" league, indicating its status as a 'Class A' league with the highest level of competition within that classification, and the fifth step between 'Rookie ball' and the 'Major Leagues'. Although Minor League Baseball, the umbrella organization for those Minor Leagues that are affiliated with the Major League Baseball system, has eliminated the distinction between 'High-A' and other full-season 'A' leagues, most Major League teams still use such leagues as a standard promotion step. A few draftees, generally early-round draftees from colleges with college experience, will be assigned to a 'High-A' team upon signing a professional contract, but generally players will not arrive at this level until their third or fourth year of professional play.
