The rewards continue to pour in for the World Series champion Red Sox. The latest was worth $416,837.72.

That’s the value of a full share of postseason revenue. The Red Sox voted to award 66 full shares, partial awards equaling 10.02 shares, and eight cash awards.

The money allocated to the players comes from 50 percent of gate receipts from the Wild Card games, 60 percent of the gate receipts from the first three games of the Division Series, and 60 percent of the first four games of the League Championship Series and World Series.

The players’ pool was divided among the 10 postseason teams.

Prior to the postseason, a players-only meeting was held by each team to determine how the money would be disbursed.

The Red Sox received $31,747,908.06. The runner-up Los Angeles Dodgers divided up $21,165,272.04.

The Red Sox used only 44 players this season. Awarding 66 full shares suggests the players were generous with the coaching staff, medical staff, and support staff.

For coaches and staff members, who are modestly paid compared with the players, postseason shares can be life changing.

In 2013, a full share was worth $307,322.68 for the champion Red Sox, and 58 were awarded. A full share in 2007 was worth $308,235.75. It was worth $233,619.79 in 2004.

Hall celebrates Sox

The Baseball Hall of Fame unveiled its annual Autumn Glory exhibit in Cooperstown, N.Y. It features a number of Red Sox mementos that will be on display for a year.

Among the items on display are a bat World Series MVP Steve Pearce used in Game 4, the jersey worn by Game 5 winner David Price, glasses used by Joe Kelly in Game 5, a hooded sweat shirt worn by manager Alex Cora.

Nathan Eovaldi and Brock Holt also donated equipment.

Now batting: Ramirez

Hanley Ramirez is back on the field. The former Red Sox player is 6 of 20 with three extra-base hits and six RBIs in six games for Licey in the Dominican Winter League. He joined the team Nov. 14.

Ramirez, who turns 35 next month, hopes to return to the majors next season. He hit .254 with a .708 OPS in 44 games for the Red Sox last season before being designated for assignment on May 25 and later released.

Ramirez was 6 of 46 in his last 11 games for the Sox with one extra-base hit.
