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). SOCCER: Last night at Indiana Univ., 9,776 attended the Dallas Burn-D.C. United U.S. Open Cup Final (U.S. Soccer).
