    Cap Anson's salary history.

    1871 – $400.
    1872 and subsequently -- I don't know, but a lot more than $400.

    For purpose of comparison, Anson got 66 2/3 dollars a month for six months in 1871; his Rockford club paid Scott Hastings, who reported late, got $100 a month for 5 months; and Boston paid Sam Jackson $750. I think Anson probably gave best value for the dollar.

    1917 - 25,000 (this didn't include his very liberal expense account.)
    1918 - 10,000 (On December 31, 1917, he voluntarily cut his own salary to 10,000, in hopes high-priced players would follow suit.)
    1919 - 30,000

    1926 - 40,000 (raised from 30,000 to 40,000 on December 20, 1925, which is to extend to 1935.)
    1927 - 40,000 (On July 9, 1927, under strong pressure from his AL team owners, he resigns his position as head of the AL, and retires. He also voluntarily waives his rights to any further salary.)
    Harry Pulliam was unanimously re-elected president of the National League with an increased salary of $10,000. The American League increased Ban Johnson's salary to $15,000 for the remaining four years of his contract.

    Casey Stengel's salary history.

    1950 - 50,000
    1951 - 65,000
    1960 - 160,000

    It shows that his salary at the time he resigned from the Yankees was $160,000.
    When Casey was fired following the Yankees' 1960 World Series loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates, based on his age (70), he told reporters, "I was told my services were no longer desired. I won't make the mistake of being 70 again."
