The Change Was Probably About $40

When asked if he had a rule against a player coming out of a game and buying hot dogs at the concession stand, Red Sox manager Terry Francona warily replied:

“No…not if he shares.”

Apparently, Boston Red Sox all-star second baseman Dustin Pedroia put that to the test recently, ordering three hot dogs after leaving a game last week. Better still, no one recognized him, with the cashier only remembering him after she was told he’d paid with a $100 dollar bill.

While humorous, this story is also a perfect illustration of just how meaningless Spring Training is for the fans.
