The World Series bonus checks are in ... and the Houston Astros are coming up BIG!!!!
Here's how it works ... each team in the MLB playoffs gets a bonus check based on how far they advanced. The bonus money is pooled from gate receipts from the playoff games.
The big winner -- the Houston Astros ... with each player getting a $438,901.57 bonus check!!!!
According to MLB, it's the largest bonus ever paid out. The previous record was held by the 2014 SF Giants, which paid players $392k each.
But don't feel too sorry for the L.A. Dodgers ... even though they lost the World Series, each player still made out with $259,722.14.
Here's how the rest of the bonuses paid out:
NY Yankees -- $138kChicago Cubs -- $133k
AZ Diamondbacks -- $40kBoston Red Sox --$36k
Cleveland Indians -- $36k Washington Nationals -- $36k
Colorado Rockies -- $18kMinnesota Twins -- $18k
It pays to be good.
