The League


The Fall Instructional League ("Instructs") is an off-season league typically comprised of short-season, rookie-level, and recently-drafted players. The goal of the league is to refine the skills of young players under the close instruction of minor league coaches and coordinators. Instructs operates in Florida annually from mid-September to late October. Rosters are determined by the front office, and typically include the most highly-regarded prospects from the lower levels of the system (Lowell, GCL, and the DSL). Approximately 45 players are invited to participate each year. Others players who are commonly invited include A-Ball players who missed significant time in the recently completed season, players who are rehabbing from injuries, players who are prepping for the Arizona Fall League, and raw players who are learning a new position or focusing on the development of a specific skill. The Red Sox Intructs team plays in Fort Myers. An invitation to Instructs generally indicates that the team is willing to invest time and money on a player's development. For DSL players, it often means that the player will get the call to a US-based affiliate the following season. Players do not receive standard pay, only room and board. Participation is contractually obligated upon invitation. On days off, players take part in fundamental drills and workouts. A significant portion of the Red Sox management team attends Instructs each year to examine the next crop of prospects.
