I was reading about the murder of 80's pitcher Pascual Perez. It referenced that he had received his MLB pension the previous day.

I had no idea that MLB had such a generous pension plan. A player only needs to be on a MLB roster for 43 days to receive a pension of $34,000 and typically a 10 year veteran can expect to receive around $185,000 a year for his pension. Also, if any player is on a MLB for 1 day, he receives lifetime health benefits.

Pretty nice program, and I think that's great! Taking care of those that came before them.
