An Empirical Examination of the Quit Behavior of Professional Baseball Players in Japan

The results imply a higher income reduces the quit probability for both pitchers and batters. However, the effect of productivity is not the same for each occupation. Even though the same definition is used and the same firm or industry is considered, the productivity effect on quit behavior is ambiguous.
