The $25 meal money shows a real commitment to player nutrition.

PBJ sandwiches for breakfast, lunch and dinner and you have plenty leftover for the bar.

In Charleston (A ball) I hung out with some guys from the DR who were on the team together. It was a two-bedroom apartment and they had 2 mattresses to each room plus 2 more in the living room, no sheets, just blankets. Guys made their own rice and beans/chicken for every meal not at the ballpark or on the road.

And this was an organization that actually treats their minor leaguers OK! And beyond OK in some cases (the team offered free english classes for all non-natives, free rides to/from the ballpark, more food than just PBJ in the clubhouse - especially if in Tampa, etc.)
