SBD/30/Leagues Governing Bodies


          MLB: MLB playoff money distribution was examined by
     Larry Lebowitz of the Fort Lauderdale SUN-SENTINEL.  MLB
     players receive 60% of the net receipts for Games One
     through Four of LCS and World Series, and 80% of the first
     three Division Series games.  Therefore, MLB owners, the
     commissioner's office and the league "profit more when the
     postseason series stretch out."  Of MLB's $2,806,700 in net
     receipts announced from the Indians-Marlins Game Seven, the
     commissioner's office received $421,005, while the AL & NL
     offices and both clubs each got $596,424.  For the seven
     game World Series, the player pool received "more than"
     $6.2M of the $18.39M in net receipts.  The commissioner's
     office received $2.75M, while the league offices and the
     teams got $2.35M apiece (SUN-SENTINEL, 10/28).
