Where is the Outrage? Yankees make more than Bankers

Lots MORE!! A baseball player making more than a banker!! And don't even think about NFL Quarterbacks

In 1988 (earliest year available from the USA Today Salaries Databases), the average salary of a baseball player on the New York Yankees ($700,339) was 28 times the average salary in other private sector jobs in New York City (about $25,000).  By 2010, the average salary for the Yankees (if you want to gnash your teeth, the average is now $8,253,000) was 124 times the average private sector salary in NYC ($66,120).
