Baseball fans win lottery with numbers of fave team greats
KANSAS CITY ROYALS’ fans won $293,750,000 in Powerball lottery with numbers of great players from their favorite team.
Mark and Cindy Hill, longtime fans of the Royals, became instant millionaires with winning numbers 5, 16, 22, 23, 29, 6 – the jersey numbers of Kansas City baseball greats George Brett, Bo Jackson, Dennis Leonard, Mark Gubicza, Dan Quisenberry and Willie Wilson.
One ticket from Arizona claimed half the pot of the $588 million Powerball jackpot.
Baseball fanatics want to link the Hill’s win to the Royals, but it was purely coincidental.
Mark handed Cindy a $10 bill and asked her to get 10 tickets. They’re $2 apiece, she reminded him, so she got only five. “Random,” Cindy said. Noli Cruz
