On ,December 12 1998 — In a deal which upsets many other owners, pitcher Kevin Brown (18-7, 2.38) becomes baseball’s first 100+ million dollar man as the right-hander signs a seven-year deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers for an average yearly salary of 15 million dollars.
Brown will win 18 games in 1999, but just 35 more over the next 4 seasons and have a 2.83 ERA for his time with the Dodgers before being traded to New York for the final 2 years of the deal.
