Full Phillies share over $350,000 for World Series win

Here's the story from ESPN.com:

NEW YORK -- A full World Series share was worth $351,504 for the Philadelphia Phillies, below the record $362,173 set by the St. Louis Cardinals two years ago.

Major League Baseball said Tuesday that the players' pool for the postseason was $51.16 million, down from $52.46 million last year and a record $55.60 million in 2006.

Phillies players received $18.42 million and split it among 45 full shares, 7.039 partial shares and 15 cash awards. Last year, a full share on the World Series champion Boston Red Sox was worth $308,236, with players awarded 47 full shares, 14 partial shares and 11 cash awards.

Not too bad for the guys who didn't earn the millions like some of the Phillies players! Even the staff got in on the awards.
