It’s generally known that baseball jobs don’t pay well. Job listings for baseball-related positions provide little to no information about salary, which can be a deterrent for applicants. Lack of transparency can be a hurdle for socioeconomically disadvantaged people and other marginalized people from gaining access to or staying in baseball as an industry. Further, pay transparency enables those who are already pursuing careers in baseball to know their worth, and aid in their next contract or salary negotiation.

The purpose of this survey is to collect anonymized information from people in a variety of roles within the industry in order to help inform people about typical compensation structures. These results will be shared in aggregate with the community. If you’d like to share the survey on social media, please use the hashtag #BaseballPaidMe. Thank you for your participation!
