BOSTON (CBS) – Two Red Sox fans left Fenway Park Friday with a new friendship and a bump in their bank accounts.
The Red Sox Foundation tweeted that Friday’s 50/50 raffle “made lifelong friends” of two men and their families.
A man from Massachusetts and a man from California were complete strangers until they ended up sitting next to each other at the game.
Your Tuesday feel-good story!
The 50/50 made lifelong friends for these two & their families, one from MA & the other from CA, who hadn't met prior to sitting next to each other on Friday at Fenway. They got 50/50 tickets, agreed to split if they won and guess what… they WON! pic.twitter.com/I168wfBNKU
