Best Answer

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.

Should softball players get paid as much as baseball players?

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.
