How Much is Too Much for Payment in Sports?

Bottom line: Baseball players are entertainers, and star entertainers get star salaries.

If your readers persist in whining about the obscenity of current baseball salary levels, let's point them in the direction of the Disney outfit, where the head guy just reaped a massive, nine-figure windfall by cashing his chips before a new president could hit him for his fair share of taxes on the loot.

That's obscenity.

And a major league baseball game is still a family bargain compared to a day at Disneyland.
