1. Mike Trout – Los Angeles Angels, Major League Baseball:
Finally, we’ve reached the richest overall sports contract on our list. Superstar Trout re-signed with the Angels for 12 years and $426,500,000 in March 2019. The signing topped Bryce Harper’s deal as the biggest in the history of baseball and North American team sports. The extension pays Trout $35,541,666 a year and $219,393 a game.
Largely touted as the No. 1 player in baseball, the Angels had no other move to make here. Trout is a two-time American League MVP. He rewarded the Angels for signing him to such a huge extension by becoming the AL Player of the Week for the fourth time this April.
