Indians hand out iPad bounty to local Boys and Girls Club
The Indians bullpen got a windfall of Apple products earlier this month after the tech giant took notice of a ransom note sent to veteran Brandon Moss, offering his 100th home run ball in exchange for iPads, iPhones, and Apple Watches.
CEO Tim Cook sent over the requested items and now the team's relief pitchers are turning the bounty into a charitable gesture.
On Wednesday the players hosted a group of kids from local Boys and Girls Clubs and handed out a dozen brand new iPads on Progressive Field before taking on the Cubs that night.
Crime doesn't usually pay, but apparently everyone wins when you kidnap and ransom a baseball.
