Playing How to Increase the Odds of Winning the Lottery

A Massachusetts man won $100,000 in the lottery by playing the jersey numbers of five Red Sox players. 

Jim Aylward Jr., 84, of Templeton won the prize on Monday with the numbers 11-16-19-22-25, according to The Associated Press. 

They belong to Rafael Devers, Andrew Benintendi, Jackie Bradley Jr.Rick Porcello, and Steve Pearce, respectively, whom the Massachusetts State Lottery described as "two young stars, a dazzling outfielder, a starting pitcher and the series MVP," in a statement.

There's no word on what he's planning to use the money for, but Aylward, who claimed his prize Wednesday, is a great-grandfather, meaning he has plenty of family with whom to share the love. 

Or he could just just it to head to the World Series next year...
