… that today is the anniversary of the $75,000 Baseball Man? In 1961, outfielder Mickey Mantle of the New York Yankees became the first Major League baseball player to be paid $75,000 per year when he signed a contract in 1961. Trivia fans: His $75,000 annual salary is equivalent to about $755,092.91 today. And the average salary for a player today is about $4 million!~~~

Today’s Inspirational Quote:

“Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday’s success or put its failures behind and start over again. That’s the way life is, with a new game every day, and that’s the way baseball is.”— Bullet Bob Feller
