The winter market of this 2021 of the Big leagues it was forecast to be one of the busiest and it hasn’t disappointed. This is because the teams have made great signatures that led them to break the record of wages and money spent on hiring in the same day, having achieved it before the start of the strike from MLB.

This Thursday, December 2, the strike of MLB players began, a situation that has paused negotiations from free agency and changes between organizations for the 2022 Season.

However, before the lockout began, the teams ‘got on their feet’ and made various hires that broke the record for money spent on the same day.

According to information shared by the Associated Press, Major League Baseball organizations spent a total of $ 1.4 billion in salaries during the course of Wednesday, December 1.

Notable hires that came before the strike include Corey Seager and Marcus Semien with the Texas Rangers, Javy Báez with the Detroit Tigers and Max Scherzer with the New York Mets.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
