The World Series bonus checks are in … and the Houston Astros are coming up BIG!!!!
Here’s how it works … each team in the MLB playoffs gets a bonus check based on how far they advanced. The bonus money is pooled from gate receipts from the playoff games.
The big winner — the Houston Astros … with each player getting a $438,901.57 bonus check!!!!
According to MLB, it’s the largest bonus ever paid out. The previous record was held by the 2014 SF Giants, which paid players $392k each.
But don’t feel too sorry for the L.A. Dodgers … even though they lost the World Series, each player still made out with $259,722.14.
Here’s how the rest of the bonuses paid out:
Chicago Cubs — $133k
NY Yankees — $138k
AZ Diammondbacks — $40k
Boston Res Sox –$36k
Cleveland Indians — $36k
Washington Nationals — $36k
Colorado Rockies — $18k
Minnesota Twins — $18k
It pays to be good.
