    Phrasal verb/ Preposition questions

    What is the difference of WORK AT, WORK IN, WORK FOR?
    Which sentence below will you use and why? Any difference?
    I am tired from a long trip.
    I am tired by a long trip.
    I am tired at a long trip.

    Can we use "Steve in the baseball team instead of "Steve is on the team."

    WORK AT, WORK IN, WORK FOR? These are not used as phrasal verb but are used in different contexts. For example:
    He works at a Bank. ( a large woking place)
    He works for M/s ABC company. ( He is contributing to the company hls labour/efforts)
    He is presently woking in the garden. ( A small place)

    Out of the three sentences I am not sure about the fist one. It can be correct.
    Steve is in the baseball team, is correct.
