Massachusetts great-grandfather wins $100K in lottery using Red Sox jersey numbers

Jim Aylward Jr. has had a pretty good run as a sports fan. 

The 84-year-old Massachusetts great-grandfather just witnessed the Boston Red Sox’ fourth World Series title since 2004.

And now he can thank the Red Sox for padding his bank account. The Associated Press reports that Aylward won $100,000 in Monday’s Mass Cash drawing with the numbers 11-16-19-22-25 and claimed the prize on Wednesday.

Those numbers correspond with the Red Sox jersey numbers of Rafael DeversAndrew BenintendiJackie Bradley Jr.Rick Porcello, and World Series MVP Steve Pearce.

AP reports that Aylward has five children, nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. If he’s the type to toss bills into birthday cards, that extra cash could come in handy.
