The median salary in the United States is $50,502, and the average is $69,891. The baseball players playing in the Major Leagues make way more than that.
The median salary in the Major League Baseball is at $1.1 million, and the average MLB salary is at $4.25 million.
This means that the bi-weekly paycheck for an average baseball player is at $326,923.
But the more you make the more the government takes from you in taxes, the average Federal tax in $129,000 for each bi-weekly paycheck.
State taxes vary however, with Florida having no income tax on the state.
Even with all the taxes, I wouldn’t mind, and I’m sure nobody else would really mind, collecting a paycheck like that.
