My son said that there are no Reds incentives other than the obvious one, getting noticed and moving up. Since posting this, I"ve asked around and found that about half of the teams add these little inducements into their minor league systems. Basically, it adds a little fun to the daily practices/games. Several of the guys that I asked, felt it help team-building and foster friendly competition. Sometimes the coaches have fun with the guys, pointing out the financial losses with a weak fly-ball or a walk. Honestly, I think the players love having the opportunity to play, they'd take the incentive money but they are not crying about it.
