Getting Called Up and moving up the leagues has everything to do with your ballplayer’s overall rating. Simply put, if your player is the highest-rated in his current position among the organization’s roster for your player’s current position, you will most definitely get called up within a season.

For example, your ballplayer’s overall rating is at 65 as a second baseman, while the best second baseman in your organization has an overall rating of 70. You will have to improve and raise your player’s overall rating to at least 71 to get called up.

How to Raise your Ballplayer’s Overall Rating?
