Alfonso Soriano, one of the best players in all of baseball in the mid-2000s, is the Dominican Republic´s best paid sportsman, according to report by ESPN to be released on May 2nd.
In 2007, Soriano signed an eight-year, $136 Million deal with the Chicago Cubs that made him one of the highest paid players in baseball.
ESPN's "Annual Salary" report represents only base salary from the most recently completed season or calendar year from each sport, and excludes any other source of compensation.
"In countries where official salary figures were unavailable, we estimated the number based on information from multiple sources, including leagues, agents, consulates, embassies, sports federations, cultural centers and the U.N.," says the report.
