By Richard Durrett

Major League Baseball announced the playoff shares for the 2012 postseason, which included the Texas Rangers' appearance in the AL wild-card game.

The Rangers' share of the players' pool was $980,452.04. The value of each full share was $16,999.09. Texas awarded 44 full shares, 8.5 partial shares and 12 cash awards.

The players' pool comes from 50 percent of the gate receipts from the wild-card games, 60 percent of the gate receipts from the first three games of the division series, 60 percent of the gate receipts from the first four games of the league championship series and 60 percent of the gate receipts from the first four games of the World Series.

That money is then distributed between all the clubs that made it to the postseason. The total pool was $65,363,469.22. A full share for the San Francisco Giants, the World Champs, was $377,002.64, while the runner-up Detroit Tigers got $284,274.50. Both of those are records.

By the way, the Rangers got $251,515.76 per full share after falling in seven games in the 2011 World Series.
