About BLA

Get to know our story, qualified team, and the BLA process.

Our Story

BLA was founded in 2016 by former Major League pitcher Michael Schwimer. Before making his Major League debut in 2011, Michael spent three seasons in the minors, where he witnessed the sacrifices teammates made to stay in the game and achieve their dream of Major League success. Since then, Michael has compiled the best sports analysts and baseball operations team in the world to provide unique opportunities for athletes.

Our Qualified Team

The Big League Advantage analytics team is comprised of experts in the fields of machine learning, data science, and predictive statistics. While the team has been together, they have accomplished things that hundreds of groups have been trying to achieve over the past few decades. Simply put, the Big League Advantage analytics team has been able to solve the unsolvable.

Several of the BLA team members have either played professional sports or have worked in the Sports industry, so we understand first-hand the grind it takes to make it to the next level. Working your way up the levels with little to no money, coupled with no support from the system, is no easy task. BLA wants to create ease in the process, so talented players can focus on the end goal: improving and growing within their sport to make it to the next level.

About BLA

Big League Advantage, LLC (BLA) provides athletes with the resources they need to help make their dream a reality. Players receive capital – not loans – and a player keeps the funds whether or not he ever makes it to the next level. For players who make it to the next level, we share in their success. We make our investment decisions and identify prospective players based on innovative analytics developed by our team.

Venture Capital

BLA is not a bank that you need to pay back. We are offering players capital to jumpstart their sports careers regardless of the outcome.


To ensure a complete understanding of a potential deal with BLA, we recommend that all players consult with a private lawyer and/or financial consultant before entering into an agreement with BLA.

We Take the Risk

The upfront payment is not a loan. If you do not make it to the next level, and your career is cut short due to unforeseen circumstances, such as injuries, you do not owe us anything.
