Anybody know how MLB players typically get paid? Does the team litterally cut them a payroll check, or is there a form of direct deposit into their bank account? Do they only get paid during the season, or is their salary distributed equally throughout the year? I know in the old days players didn't make enough to support their families throughout the year so they typically had a second job during the offseason. Do they get paid every week, every two weeks, every month, or what? Inquiring minds want to know.
