Yankees make players pay for in-flight Wi-Fi despite being one of the world’s most valuable franchises: report
The New York Yankees have the second-highest payroll in MLB heading into the 2023 season and maybe that’s why players shockingly have to pay for their own Wi-Fi on flights.
The Yankees are the fourth most valuable sports franchise in the world, valued at $6 billion according to Forbes, but one report on Wednesday revealed that the Bronx Bombers put it on the players to pay for their own internet on flights.
Speaking with several players on the team and others throughout the league, Sports Illustrated reports that the Yankees are just one of two teams in MLB that don’t pick up the $9 tab on Delta flights.

The other team is the Cincinnati Reds, who rank 26th in payroll with $70.6 million compared to the Yankees $267.9 million, per Spotrac.
“It’s your fault,” center fielder Brett Gardner told Gerrit Cole when speaking to the outlet. “Your contract is too big, so they can’t pay for the Wi-Fi.”
