By The Associated Press

NEW YORK -- The Los Angeles Angels voted to give a full postseason share to the estate of Nick Adenhart, the rookie pitcher killed in April in a car accident allegedly caused by a drunken driver.

The Angels' shares were worth $138,039. Los Angeles lost to the New York Yankees in the AL championship series.

The Yankees won the World Series, and their full postseason shares were worth a record $365,053, Major League Baseball said Monday. That was up from $351,504 on the 2008 champion Philadelphia Phillies and the previous mark of $362,173 set by the 2006 St. Louis Cardinals.

With a hike in some ticket prices this year, the players' pool for the postseason was $59.1 million, an increase from $51.16 million last year and the previous record of $55.60 million in 2006.
