Yes. In 1990, a lockout by Major League Baseball canceled much of spring training and pushed back opening day. Because of the shortened spring training, teams were allowed to keep 28 players on their roster until May 1.
Major League Baseball rosters consist of 25 players from the start of the season in early April until August 31. As of September 1, teams are allowed to expand their rosters to 40 players until the season ends (usually first week of October).
MLB rosters include 40 players, but only 25 may be active at any time during the regular season. On September 1st of each season, teams may increase their active roster up to the 40 player limit until the end of the regular season. Most teams, however, increase their active roster by less than the 40 player limit.
There's a maximum of 25 to a Major League Baseball Roster from the start of the Regular Season until September 1 then the maximum is increased to 40 but it is decreased back to 25 once the Playoffs start. There's no limit to rosters during Spring Training.

The easiest thing to do would be to post a picture of the signed baseball on a baseball collectors forum and hope someone can help you identify the signature. You can also do some detective work, and narrow down the possibilities then research the baseball online looking for images of the same signature. The origin of the baseball might help figure out what team the player that signed the baseball was on. Trace the baseball as far back as possible to the city of it's origin, or to where you found the baseball. Once you have figured out what city the baseball originated from find the closest Major League team to that city. If the baseball was found in New York for example the possibilities could be both the Mets, and the Yankees but it could also be from the older teams that have left New York like the Dodgers, and the Giants so the age of the baseball might be important as well. If the baseball that the signature is on is an official Major League baseball check the name of the league president. This will help date the baseball, and might help determine what era the player signature is from. Now with this info try to figure out at least the initials of the player. Once you have an idea of the players initials take the information for example: initials "BR" Now start your research for a player with the first name starting with "B" the last name starting with "R" from a team playing in the city of New York, signed on a Joe Cronin American League baseball. Taking note that the length of the name is too long to be Babe Ruth, and the baseball was made after Babe Ruth passed away you can rule him out. Bobby Richardson could be a possibility. Do a search on line for players that played for New York teams, list them and start searching for single signed baseballs for each name until you find a matching image. If you have no luck then the player might be from another team. Baseball-almanac (Link below) has a complete all time list of Major League players from A-Z look for possibilities and start the search again using as many letters in the name as possible. Baseball-Almanac also has team rosters year by year.
