Professional softball players, of course, get paid. However, they do not earn nearly as much money as Major League Baseball players. The Olympic Team that will compete in Beijing this year does get paid, more than the professional softball players, but again, not as much as the average Major League Baseball player. For example, Jennie Finch drives a van, NOT a Ferrari.
Depends on how big their norks are.
Professional softball players are paid less than professional baseball players because softball is not as popular as baseball. Baseball has a much bigger market in the economy, as proven by the baseball stadiums, playing cards, t-shirts, and hats. Because of all the profits that these things generate, they are able to pay their players more. Softball does not have this kind of publicity, and there for the money that flows into the organizations involved in the sport do not draw as much money either. Because they do not draw as much revenue as the baseball organizations, they are not able to pay their players as much as baseball players get paid.
they don't get paid to play in the olympics. it is a privalege to play
The salary cap in professional softball keeps the range from $7000 to $17,000 per year.
no one gets paid in the Olympics unless they are in a commercial brodcast
No they do not get paid. They can get scholarship money to help pay for their education.
The average salary of a Professional Softball player is around $6,000 per season. However, just as in baseball, it depends on the players talent and position.
No, not until the two sports have a similar economic status. Major League Baseball players are paid a lot of money because the business behind the sport is very successful and brings in a lot of money. Softball does not create enough income for a team to pay the same amounts that an MLB team can pay their best players. It depends on how many people come to the games.
Not as much as NBA players
Baseball players get paid about 20,000 dollars a game
the top players get paid 30-50 million
