Doug Fister buys everybody Starbucks for Christmas

Wednesday December 24th, 2014

Washington Nationals pitcher Doug Fister was feeling particularly generous on Christmas Eve, so he decided to buy Starbucks for everyone. 

Fister posted a barcode on his Twitter page and told followers to have a Starbucks barista scan the barcode, which would give them a free cup of coffee. He also cautioned potential Grinches to only use the barcode once. 

Fister made $7.2 million in 2014, so as long as everyone stays away from Venti-sized coffees, he shouldn't have too big an issue footing the bill.
