I'll paraphrase John Thompson (again) about athletes in general,  "Ever since he was 6 years people found he could hit a baseball and be a meal ticket, no one ever told him to shut up and sit down."

"Meal ticket" can mean a ride along the winning lines that Smithian refers to in his comments above or even the financial "meal ticket" of some friends and maybe family.
