$10,000 but it may have gone up with the new CBA - it should be $50,000 in my opinion as most awards packages have an award winner get $100k but that number goes to a veteran during salary arbitration or free agency.
Yes. In 1983 Darryl Strawberry won the MLB National League Rookie of the Year Ron Kittle won the American League Rookie of the Year.
Jackie Robinson was the winner of the 1947 MLB rookie of the year award as a member of the Brooklyn Dodgers. This was the inagural year for this award, makinf Jackie the first ever winner.

Babe Ruth's first year in MLB was 1914. There was no Rookie of the Year award at that time nor any rules and regulations as to how much a player could play before he lost his rookie status. In 1914, Ruth had 10 at bats and pitched 23 innings which, by today's regulations, would not have caused him to lose his rookie status. Therefore, it could be said that 1915, when he pitched 217 2/3 innings, was his rookie season.
The Rookie of the Year award was started in 1947. For the 1947 and 1948 season, one player was named ROY for MLB as opposed to the way it is today where one player is named ROY for each league. The first MLB ROY was Jackie Robinson.
Depends on the player, good players only spend a year
A player can NOT be considered a rookie in any season AFTER a season during which he was on a MLB roster for 45 days (need not be consecutive). Ross was on the roster of the Oakland A's on 2010 April 7, and was not sent back to the minors until July 11th of that year. Thus, his only rookie year was 2010.
Rookie League is the lowest level of minor leagues in MLB. The players in rookie league are usually very young, just out of high school or coming from foreign countries.
As of the 2007 World Series, Livan Hernandez of the 1997 Florida Marlins is the only rookie to have won the World Series MVP award.
