Babe Ruth is arguably the greatest baseball player who has ever lived, and once you see one of his paychecks, it's clear he was a huge bargain.
Sure, that was quite a bit of money for those times. However, that wouldn't come close to matching the salaries of today's biggest stars.
Check out an astounding estimate of what Detroit Tigers star Miguel Cabrera will make under his latest contract:
Miguel Cabrera will earn $49,423 PER AT BAT over the next decade. Median annual income of a household in Michigan: $48,471.— darren rovell (@darrenrovell) March 27, 2014
Cabrera has the largest contract in baseball history to a player not named Alex Rodriguez.
