I was wondering if anyone knew how MLB pensions work. I always heard that a player has to have 10 years service in to recieve a pension but does that player get credit even if say he played in only 5 games in a given year?
I also was curious on how much does MLB pay a player per year for thier pensions. I'm guessing they recieve a pension until death too.

"I have the ultimate respect for Whitesox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Redsox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)
