How much money does the MLB World Series winner get?
The Atlanta Braves defeated the Houston Astros in the 2021 World Series, earning their first title since 1995. Here’s how much money they could potentially earn.
The final game of the World Series took place tonight, Tuesday, Nov 2. at the Minute Maid Park. The Houston Astros and Atlanta Braves went into Game 6 fighting for the title, with the Astros as the hottest bats in baseball. During the first two of the three games played in Truist Park, Astros bats seemed to have gone cold only to awaken with a vengeance in Game 5. They have put up inspiring numbers, especially with two outs, all season long.
But the Braves slammed the door on the Astros in Game 6 winning 7-0 in a do-or-die performance, celebrating the World Series Title.
How much money will the Braves get?
There is no defined amount to how much the MLB World Series winners make, but the money paid out to the champions is the total of the ‘Player’s Pool’ or prize money. The 'Pool' is basically the money added from all the ticket sales during the MLB playoffs. The 2021 just-now winner of the World Series, the Braves, will earn most of the ‘Pool’ money and distribute the total amount between the players and coaching staff.
In the 2018 World Series, the Boston Red Sox were paid a reported $31 million as the World Series champions. Each player earned an average of $400,000 and received a Championship ring valued at $20,000. Players on the losing teams made a reported $259,000 each. The 2018 season was one of the biggest payouts to MLB teams.
