Jim Thome Walk-Off Home Run Nets 5K Bonus From Papelbon

PHILADELPHIA – Jonathan Papelbon signed a $50 million dollar deal in the off-season with the Philadelphia Phillies. After blowing his first save of the season in 18 attempts against the Tampa Bay Rays, Papelbon decided to re-invest some of  that money in the team, specifically in veteran slugger Jim Thome.  Papelbon offered to pay teammate Jim Thome $5,000 if he would hit a pinch hit home run in the bottom of the ninth. Thome connected off Jake McGee (2-2) for home run No. 609. Papelbon said he told Thome in the on-deck circle that he would give him $5,000 if he hit a homer. Papelbon said he wrote the check in the clubhouse. Thome, however, told the Philadelphia Inquirer that he hadn’t received any payment. Take a look at the video of one of the games best sluggers. and a sure fire first ballot Hall of Famer
