Man wins lottery prize by picking Red Sox jersey numbers
BRAINTREE, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts great-grandfather has won a $100,000 lottery prize by picking the jersey numbers of five members of the World Series-winning Boston Red Sox.
The lottery said in a statement that 84-year-old Jim Aylward Jr., of Templeton, won the prize in Monday's Mass Cash drawing using the numbers 11-16-19-22-25. He claimed his prize Wednesday.
The numbers represent "two young stars, a dazzling outfielder, a starting pitcher and the series MVP," the lottery said in a release.
Aylward has five children, nine grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.
