Yeah, I've worked for companies that make billions and I've never gotten paid at the level of a professional athlete. Many people have gotten rich by the proverbial sweat of my brow. I sure as heck haven't.
A scholarship worth $30k-$60k a year plus special focused training is decent compensation for 18-22 yr, old entry-level budding pro players.
How much do single A and AA minor league baseball players make on average?
