Why Join Sandlot Share?
You love baseball, you’re passionate about the sport, but, unfortunately, the odds are against you. Statistically, only first-round draft picks have a higher than 50% chance of making the Major Leagues. By the fifth round, a player’s odds of making the Major Leagues hover around 25%. While in the minors, players only earn just over $1,000 to slightly more than $2,000 a month and only get paid for the 5-month regular season.
In contrast, the minimum annual salary for a major league baseball player is just under $600,000, with some athletes making millions of dollars a year.
Many dedicated and hardworking professional baseball players may struggle to provide for themselves and their families. That is why Sandlot Share delivers income-pooling services. When a player is eligible for the MLB Draft or in the minors, they can join a pool with some of their colleagues. If one or more of the players makes it to the majors and starts earning millions, they contribute a percentage of their income to the pool, which gets distributed amongst the other members.
Various benefits exist for participating in income-pooling:
- Increases your chances of earning a living wage
- Allows you to cheer on your colleagues’ achievements, as your successes are tied together
- Gives you peace of mind knowing that you are taking control of your future
Our team is ready to answer your questions and explain the process of income-pooling. Speak with us by calling or submitting an online contact form today.
