The Confederacion Beisbol Profesional de Caribe paid out $284,000 to the top teams in the 2024 Caribbean Series, according to a report from Venezuelan business news website Banca Y Negocios.

Played at loanDepot Park in Miami, the 2024 Caribbean Series was the third time the event was played in Miami and the first time it was played in a Major League Baseball stadium.

The event drew 340,325 fans to loanDepot Park, with two games – the Dominican Republic’s 5-2 win against Puerto Rico on March 3 and the championship game between Venezuela and the Dominican Republic – setting a new record for single-game attendance at the Caribbean Series. The D.R.’s win against Puerto Rico drew 35,972, while the championship game drew 36,677.

In total, the CBPC paid Venezuela’s Tiburones de La Guaira, who won their first Caribbean Series title and Venezuela’s first crown at the event in 15 years, a cool $144,000, which worked out to a little over $5,000 per player.

The second-place Tigres del Licey from the Dominican Republic got a total of $90,000, while the third-place Federales de Chiriqui of Panama got $50,000.
