Major League Baseball announced the amount of money players will receive from participating in the postseason today. The World Series Champion San Francisco Giants will divide up $19,764,779.19 from the players’ pool, and each of the 50 players that earned full shares will get $317,631.29.

The Texas Rangers will split $13,176,519.46, and each of the 44 players they voted to receive full shares will get $246,279.55. 

Catcher Bengie Molina played for both the Giants and Rangers, but it’s not known if he received a share from both teams. He can’t make more than a full Giants share.

Twelves teams share in the player’s pool, which is created from gate receipts for all required playoff games.
