Yankee’s High Payroll Players Pay Off!

A rough estimate of the Yankee’s revenue in 2009 shows they cashed in on their success more than any other team. Multiply the number of people coming to games by the average ticket price ($73),and the Yankees took in about $270 million this season, or $69 million more than they shelled out for their payroll.

This doesn’t even take into account the sale of hats and shirts and bats, TV rights, Playoff tickets and bonuses, etc so perhaps you get what you pay for…the Championship and high profits.

I was born in New York and I don’t care how much we spend to win!
