Former Cleveland Indians minor league player, Joel Torres, won $1 million in New York’s “Sweet Millions” lottery. Late last month he was released from the minors, and he was effectively unemployed.
On February 24, Joel Torres had won the “Sweet Millions” with a ticket he had purchased in Queens while he was visiting his mother. The former outfielder’s major lottery win didn’t become public until he picked up his lump sum check for $660,300. See what happens when you visit your mother.
There is no doubt that this lucky lotto win will help Torres along in life especially after he was cut from the Indians. There is now word yet on what team he’s going to try to play for, but perhaps there’s a place for him out there.
Can you believe this guy was lucky enough to win the lottery? How often do you play the lotto?
