In One Chart: Big Papi and other retired baseball players can get a $210,000-a-year pension

And even if you’re in a union and will be getting one, it probably won’t be for hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. But if you’re a Major League Baseball player who’s managed to stick around in the big leagues for a while, you’ll be getting a generous pension check in your retirement.
