Giants set record with $388,606 postseason shares

NEW YORK — A full postseason share for the World Series champion Giants was worth a record $388,606, topping the previous mark of $370,873 set by San Francisco two years ago.

The Giants' total was up from $307,323 for the Boston Red Sox last year. The players' pool of $62 million was down from $62.7 million last year and a record $65.4 million in 2012.

The Giants split $22.3 million into 47 full shares, partial shares equivalent to another 9.65 and 17 cash awards, the Commissioner's Office said Monday.

A full share on the AL champion Kansas City Royals was worth $230,700, up from $228,300 for St. Louis last year and down from $284,275 for 2012 AL champion Detroit.

The players' pool included 50 percent of the gate receipts from the two wild-card games, and 60 percent from the first three games of each division series and the first four games of each league championship series and the World Series.

Full shares were worth $125,288 for Baltimore, $115,481 for St. Louis, $31,544 for Detroit, $31,543 for the Los Angeles Dodgers, $29,845 for the Los Angeles Angels, $29,418 for Washington, $16,556 for Pittsburgh and $15,266 for the A's.
