Star center fielder Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels are finalizing the largest contract in professional sports history, a 12-year deal worth more than $430-million that will smash previous records and could keep the greatest player of his generation with the Angels for the remainder of his career, sources familiar with the deal told ESPN yesterday.
The 27-year-old Trout, who has won two American League MVP awards and finished second four times, will receive an average of nearly $36-million a year, topping Zack Greinke's previous record average of $34.4-million with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
But what fun are those numbers when you can break them down like this.
That $430-million bucks breaks down to $35.8-million a year; abut $3-million a month; $746,527 per week; an hourly wage of $4,443, or seventy-four bucks every minute.
And if you really want to do this—that comes out to making a dollar twenty-three every second.
If I were Trout I would just buy a really nice watch and every second pump my fist saying“Boom!”
