Babe Ruth's 1927 Paycheck
Babe Ruth may be the best hitter who ever lived. But when you look at his paycheck from the Yankees in 1927, you may not know it. Although the amount was much more impactful during that time, according to Kyle Newport of Bleacher Report, it still doesn't come close to what players are making these days.
I wonder if Ruth's reaction to his contract was anything like Miguel Cabrera's .
