You can put a price on victory: $20,000.
That’s the bonus that each player on the winning All-Star team will earn starting next season, one of a host of details unveiled Friday when Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Assn. confirmed and announced a new collective bargaining agreement through the 2021 season.
The league will use cash — rather than the lure of home-field advantage in the World Series — to try to motivate players to give it their all for their league in an exhibition game. The average major league salary on Opening Day last season: $4.4 million, or about $24,000 per day for the 183-day season.
