Local Man Wins $100,000 In Lottery By Playing Red Sox Uniform Numbers

Come on, you've probably done it, too! A local Red Sox fan from Templeton, Massachusetts cashed in his love for the team in the Massachusetts State Lottery. On Monday, Jim Aylward won $100,000 in the Mass Cash game by playing the uniform numbers of his favorite Red Sox players—11 (Rafael Devers); 16 (Andrew Benintendi); 19 (Jackie Bradley, Jr.); 22 (Rick Porcello); 25 (Steve Pearce). The ticket with the winning combination was sold at a Cumberland Farms store in East Templeton. Aside from the owners of the Cumby's, perhaps the happiest people are Jim's nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren—hey, the holidays are coming, aren't they?
