The All Star Game is a wonderful opportunity for a select group of players. But, lets turn our attention to wages.
The new collective bargaining agreement states the winning Club (American or National) will be awarded $640,000, which shall be divided by the 32 player roster (20 fielders and 12 pitchers).
Right or wrong, the loosing Club does not share the $640,000. That said, Players selected and Players who Play in the MLB All Star Game are granted some pretty outstanding ancillary gifts.
