Maury Brown of Forbes reports that Major League Baseball’s annual revenues for 2014 will top $9 billion. That figure is an increase of $1 billion over last year.

Driving the increase: media revenue, with new deals with FOX, ESPN, and TBS doubling the previous national TV take and local deals for the Dodgers, Rangers, Angels and others all leading to increases.

As Brown notes, gross revenues for Major League Baseball have grown 321 percent in the past 19 years.
