NEW YORK — Players who appeared for the major leagues for less than four years from 1947-79 will receive payments of up to $10,000 in each of the next two years under an agreement between Major League Baseball and the players' association.
Until 1980, players needed four years to vest in the pension plan. Since then, players need just one day in the majors to vest.

[*] Walter Alston, too soon; Kevin Melillo, too late.
