And he actually makes $10.6 million for the first 9 years of his contract. But the three years after that he has to scrape by on $3 million.
Yeah baseball brings in more money because it is a more popular sport and has a 162 game season. Maybe hockey would be more popular if it didn't have a lockout every 7-8 years that cancels whole seasons. Hard to gain and keep interest with nothing to watch or support.
