Thanks to another record year of revenue in Major League Baseball and a historic World Series victory, Chicago Cubs players are set to receive a hefty postseason bonus.
As announced by MLB on Tuesday, the Chicago Cubs will split up a record $27,586,017.75 postseason pot among their players. Since the Cubs will be issuing 66 full shares, that means each player will receive $368,871.59. That’s actually down from the $370,069.03 each Kansas City Royals player received after winning the 2015 World Series, but only because they awarded 58 full shares.
As for the AL champion Indians, who missed three chances to win the series and the larger share, they received $18,390,678.50. They plan to issue 60 full shares, valued at $261,804.65.
