Description

A collection of stories dealing with baseball salaries. The first story examines the widening gap between the highest-paid athletes and the players making the least amount of money. For example, in 1988, the range between the median major league salary and highest-paid player has increased from $2,125,714 to $21,100,000. The second story looks at the which teams "get the most bang for their buck" by spending little money on big talent. Finally, a small story lists a team of talented players that worked for $300,000 or less last year to emphasize the idea that talent doesn't have to come with an enormous pricetag.
