1967 Payroll all of the MLB

Sunday, January 3rd, 2010

In 1967 the combined payroll of the entire Major Leagues was 9.5 million dollars.

500 K more than Brian Giles made last year, 1.5 million more than Austin Kearns, twenty years ago in 1988 the highest paid player was Gary Carter and he made $ 2,360,714, last year A-Rod made 33 MILLION dollars and the Yankees median salary was 5.2 million dollars.

Boggles the mind if you think too much about it, something will have to burst that bubble someday, it’s the nature of the market. Unfettered growth is an illusion in the baseball world.
