Abstract

This article examines the effect of income and productivity on the quit behavior of Japanese professional baseball players. 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.
