Red Sox players are getting almost 224-thousand dollars each
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

NEW YORK (AP) -- Red Sox players are getting almost 224-thousand dollars each for their efforts in winning the teamÔŅĹs first World Series title since 1918.

ThatÔŅĹs the smallest for a World Series winner since 1997.

A baseball official who asked not to be named says Red Soxplayers only voted a three-quarters share for Nomar Garciaparra, who was traded mid-season.

Red Sox players voted 58 full shares, up from 37 full shares given by the Florida Marlins the previous year. At the time of the World Series, several reports said Garciaparra had been awarded a full share.

St. Louis players, swept by Boston in the Series, voted 51 full shares, which came to just over 163-thousand dollars each.
