|

 A full Postseason share for the 2012 World Series Champion San Francisco Giants amounted to a record $377,002.64, while a full share for the American League Champion Detroit Tigers totaled $284,274.50, Major League Baseball announced today.

 This year’s record share total eclipses the previous high, $362,173.07 for the 2006 World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals.  Last year’s share amounts were $323,169.98 for the 2011 World Champion Cardinals and $251,515.76 for the A.L. Champion Texas Rangers.

The players’ pool was formed from 50 percent of the gate receipts from the Wild Card Games presented by Budweiser; 60 percent of the gate receipts from the first three games of the Division Series; 60 percent of the gate receipts from the first four games of the League Championship Series; and 60 percent of the gate receipts from the first four games of the World Series.  The players’ pool was divided among the 10 Postseason Clubs: the two World Series participants, the two League Championship Series runners-up, the four Division Series runners-up and the two runners-up in the Wild Card Games presented by Budweiser.  (In previous years, the players’ pool was divided among 12 Clubs, including the eight Postseason participants and the four regular season second-place Clubs that were not Wild Cards.)  The 2012 players’ pool was $65,363,469.22.
