Figure of the day: the most expensive contract in sports history (it was signed by a 27-year-old baseball player)

Trout has been playing for the club since 2011 (playing as an outfielder). The athlete twice became the most valuable player in the American League.

Prior to this, the record belonged to the American baseball player Bryce Harper, who on March 2, 2019 signed a thirteen-year contract worth $ 330 million with the Philadelphia Phillies club.

It is interesting that Major League Baseball players sign agreements with record amounts more often than other athletes, while the average annual salary of League stars is lower than that of top NFL and NBA players. Huge amounts are associated with the fact that baseball, as a rule, concludes longer contracts.
