How much money does the 2023 MLB World Series winning team get?
The Texas Rangers were crowned champions of the World Series for the first time in their history after defeating the Diamondbacks in five games.
The 2023 MLB season is over. The Texas Rangers clinched the World Series title after triumphing over the Arizona Diamondbacks in five matches, thereby securing their inaugural championship.
The Rangers, who had previously ousted the 2022 World Series champions, the Houston Astros, clinched the series in the fifth game against the ‘Snakes’, marking a historic milestone for the franchise.
Beyond the honour of being remembered as the top team of the Major League season and taking home the trophy and their World Series championship ring, the victorious team also receives a financial reward for their championship win.
How much money did the Rangers earn for winning the World Series?
The exact amount the winners of the World Series receives is not fixed, because it depends on ticket sales and TV revenue. In recent years the amount has been around $30 million and for 2023 it is estimated that the World Series champion will take home around $35 million, which breaks down to about $440,000 per player.
The Astros previously picked up $38.7 million, the largest in Major League history. The World Series runner-up also receives a prize pot for their part in the battle for the Commissioner’s Trophy. Various reports suggest that the second-placed team takes home around $25 million.
