Who Is the Mystery Player?
Byline: Maury Brown
As announced on Thursday, we have launched an MLB salary database (http://bizofbaseball.com/index.php?option=com_wrapper&view=wrapper&Itemid=179) that has complete Opening Day salary for each player that runs from 1985 to 2008. While we currently pulling in 2009's complete data, we will also be adding some historical salary information that we have been researching on for some time. While this data is incomplete (not every player for every year will be available), some interesting players, will.
As we work through the data, we thought it would be fun to try and guess a player by salary. Leave your guesses in the comments. Here's the salary selection to guess from:
Salary Year Club $16,000 1964 CWS $28,500 1969 CWS $28,500 1970 NYY
