Still, top-tier athletes have to be so dedicated to their sports discipline, I doubt if even 5% would have prepared themselves for any kind of remunerative career in a non-sports field. Although, like the general population, 16% of the 75% who are Americans (12%) would have had the potential to make over $100K if they had committed themselves early on to such a career. They mostly all marry bimbos, too, so wouldn't be able to depend on their professional wives to make much of a career, either.
Considering that their husbands average over $3 million per year, bimbo might not be the right word.

I've seen them. I stumbled into a gaggle of them waiting outside a clubhouse at the World Series. They are a very sad looking bunch. They brought to mind a bunch of hookers that had just been rounded up and waiting to be arraigned. Maybe they were just pissed because they hate the World Series, when they actually have to go to the games. Imagine what it's like to be a rookie wife among the wives of the all-stars. All of them suspecting each other of Anna Benson syndrome. The money might be good, but I doubt if the life is.

This reminds me of having seen groupies hanging around the ball parks in small minor league towns, hoping to latch onto a future star.

My aunt was a groupie in Milwaukee when they were in Triple-A, and "dated" Eddie Stanky.
My sister's roommate at the time was dating a player who was a teammate of a minor leaguer named Henry Aaron, and in fact, that year, hit more homers than Aaron did for the Eau Claire Bears.
