Top 25 MLB Salaries in 2010

Top 25 MLB Salaries in 2010

Posted on 24. Jul, 2010 by in Tools

With spring training just getting started I thought It would be cool to take a look at this season’s top salaries around the league.

I Can’t Believe Some of These Guys

It still amazes me to see what these guys are making, for playing a game that they love day after day. This list should obviously blow our minds, but also excite you because of what our sport has to offer. Even at lower levels, baseball is a game that can truly change someone’s life, give them experiences that they’ll never forget, and teach them a lof more than just how to swing a bat or throw a ball.

Have fun with the list, and digg/tweet it along if you find it interesting…
