Answer: First MLB Player to Earn a Million Dollars

Nolan Ryan was the first player to sign a million dollar contract in 1981. Ryan, though, is not the first player to earn a million dollars. Albert Goodwell Spalding is the first MLB player to earn a million through his brother Walter's Spalding sporting goods empire in the late 1800's (the company started while Albert was still a pro ball player).
