Do Major League baseball players get paid more than any other US sport players?

In the United States, professional sports' salaries in NFL football, MLB baseball and NBA basketball can run into the $20 million per year range. Because baseball players can remain "star" players longer then star players in the two other major sports, there can be a greater tendency to see extremely high salary packages for star performers. As an example, the National League team, Miami Marlins just closed a $327 million, 13 year contract with a 25 year old player on their team. Without a doubt, such a longterm, and expensive salary contract will never be seen by a 25 year old basketball or football star in US professional sports. Each of the three major professional sports will have a certain number of extremely high salary deals. With that said, professional baseball players have a greater chance of having the lion's share of these multi million dollar deals.

How many professional baseball players are there in the world including minor league teams?

This information is for the US only: For Major League Players - There are 30 Major League teams each with a 40 man roster. 30 x 40 = 1200 Then, on average, each team has 6 farm teams in its system with a roster of 25 to 30 players. So 6 x 30 x 30 = 5400. So in the United States there are approximately 6600 professional baseball players in the MLB and MiLB. Now do you also want to count players in the Independant Leagues as professional baseball players? Also I know that there is a huge system in Japan, Central America and South America. No clue as to find out how many professional players are in those countries.
