really depends on a sport that the client is particapating in........the sayin is when you get paid.....is when your client gets payed.....agents usually get a percentage of the players contract......i.e. if the player receives a 100,000 contract.....u receive 10,000 if the % is %10............but if a player receives a 100,000,000 you receive 100,000 if you get %10......if your player receives a 10 dollar contract then you get 1 dollar if it is 10 percent.......
Nolan Ryan was the first that I know of.
On November 19, 1979, Nolan Ryan became the first player to sign a contract for more than a million dollars per year. Richard Moss, Ryan's agent, helped negotiate a 4-year, $4.5 million dollar contract for the future Hall of Famer, making him the highest paid player at the time. Although most people would say the above answer is the official first one million dollar a year player, in actuality Pittsburgh Pirate Dave Parker was the first player to make one million dollars a year signing the contract a year prior to Nolan Ryan. The reason he isn't commonly cited as so is because the Pirates worded the contract in a way to make it look like he was making that much because they didn't want to be known as the first team to pay a player one million dollars a year
It Depends On The Contract You Sign For An Example I Sign A 30,000,000 Million Dollar Contract So I Get $5,000,000 Dollars A Year But It Add Up To 30 Million Dollars But You Got To Break It Down
It all depends on if they signed a million-dollar-or-more minor league contract or if they were a draft pick.
Dave Parker signed a million dollar contract on Jan. 1, 1979. Nolan Ryan signed his on a day in Nov. 1979, therefor Dave Parker was the first Million dollar a year ballplayer.
The first player in the NFL to have a base salary of $1 million was Bruce Matthews, who played for the Houston Oilers. The first NFL player to have a signing bonus of $1 million was Johnny Lam Jones who played for the New York Jets.
Derek Sanderson was the first player EVER to sign a million dollar contract, however he didn't have the highest annual salary. The total worth of the contract was the most. For Example, A-Rod signed a 300 million dollar deal in baseball. If say Manny Ramirez signed a 2 year 65 million dollar deal, Manny would average more per season, while A-Rods total contract was more.
Mike Schmidt was baseball's first 2 million dollar man, signing a 4-year contract after the 1983 season for $2.1 million per year.
Alex Rodriguez currently playing for the New York Yankees is. He had a 252 million dollar contract for 10 years. Basically 25 million dollars a year.
Troy Polamalu who signed a $30.18 Million dollar contract for a 4-year extension on July 23, 2007.
Once they have signed a contract or the player received a franchise tag
may not be
there isn't a minimum salary in the mlb. basically if the player is willing to sign a contract to play for that team for a dollar than he can go into contract for that.
