The winter meetings are an annual event held each December in which the representatives of the 20 Bull League teams and their minor league affiliates convene for several days to discuss league business, and conduct off-season trades and transactions.

The Rule 5 draft, in which players not on a team's 40-man roster can be drafted, occurs on the last day of the winter meetings.

The Hall of Fame balloting period opens during the winter meetings, although the voting results are not announced until the following January.
