Quirky Clauses in Baseball Player Contracts
The Mental Floss Blog has put together an amusing list of odd clauses inserted into the contracts of certain major league baseball players. The Uniform Player Contract (page 210 etc. of the Basic Agreement), of course, permits "special covenants" of this nature, but some of these seem quite weird.
Test your knowledge by matching the contract clause to the player in the list below:
Contract quirk (team to provide...):
Nine limo trips for player's wife from Maryland to Canada
$100 worth of mustache wax
37 boxes of orange jello
You can view the full list here.
