The Texas Rangers marked a historic moment in their franchise history by winning their first World Series title. The team’s victory brought in a total pool of $107.8 million for Major League Baseball, surpassing the previous record set by any other team in the league’s history. Each full postseason share for the World Series champions totaled $506,263, which was just below the record set by the Houston Astros in 2022.
This year, Texas split $38.8 million into 64 full shares, 12.56 partial shares, and $48,000 in cash awards. In comparison to the Astros, who last year divided their pool into 59 full shares, 14.14 partial shares, and $940,000 in cash awards. Other playoff teams this year received full shares ranging from $173,187 for Houston to $8,336 for Milwaukee. The pool includes 60% from the first two games of each Wild Card Series and the first three games of each Division Series and League Championship Series and the World Series.
