Each Houston Astro is getting a record chunk of change as a result of the team's victory in the 2022 World Series. The MLB's Mark Feinsand reported Tuesday that the team members are dividing up a record players' pool of more than $107 million. Each player will receive more than $516,000, topping the previous record of nearly $439,000, which also involved the Astros in 2017. The money in the players' pool comes from percentages of the gate receipts from postseason games.
