San Francisco Giant players got their World Series bonus today courtesy Major League Baseball.

Their share, split 50 ways, ended up being exactly $317,631.29.  That's not a bad bonus for players like Pablo Sandoval, Eli Whiteside and Travis Ishikawa who make in the $400K range.

The team voted the 50 full shares to members of the team and other personnel, according to MLB.  MLB says The team also voted 9.89 partial shares and five cash awards.

The money is less than the $350K the New York Yankees got last season.

You can blame smaller stadiums in this year's playoffs for the lesser amount.  The players' pool is mathematical figure.  It's 60 percent of the gate receipts from the first three games of the Division Series and 60 percent of the gate receipts from the first four games of the League Championship Series and World Series.
