Despite first
100-shekel man, salaries drop


Seward Park (NY) -- The average player salary fell again, to 5.9 shekels. Last year, the average was 6.2s, down from 6.6s in 1943.

LES resumed their cost-cuting ways. They now rank last at 4.1s.

The National Division is the hightest paid at 7.2s. Helping was New England's signing of Cole Hamels to a record 108-s deal.

Norm Cash cap remains
Not a single club reached the 377-shekel Norm Cash line. The salary cap remains at 406 shekels for the current season.
