PawSox outfielder Bryan Pritz and Cleveland Indians minor leaguer Randy Newsom have this company called Real Sports Investments.
What happens is you give these minor league baseball players money (or "invest" in them) and then when or if they get to the major leagues, you get a percentage of that income.
"Typical" payment is between $25,000-$100,000.
The players use that money for... Lasik eye surgery? A personal trainer? The family? Yeah.
