Both players get $40,000,000. But I think you wanted to know how much EACH player is paid. Let's call the catcher's salary X. The pitcher gets 4 times that much, so it is 4X. Added to the catcher's salary (4x+x=5x) Now divide the total pay (40,000,000) by 5. That is 800,000. That is the catcher's pay. The pitcher gets 4 times that much- (4 x 800,000) or $3,200,000.
