[from an interview of Von der Ahe] It may be a surprise to you but it is a fact, nevertheless that the Brown Stocking team is the highest salaried team in America. The Detroit management claims that their nine is the highest salaried and they approximate their whole list at $33,000 or $34,000. Our salary list will easily reach $35,000. .. The average salary is about $2,450 or about $3,500 per month each for the season of seven months.
