Culinary no-no #749


Major League Baseball playoffs are now underway. Milwaukee Brewer fans are disappointed they failed to make the postseason, but they take some comfort in that their rivals, the St. Louis Cardinals were knocked out of the Wild Card by the Philadelphia Phillies with the help of Bryce Harper.

Heading into the 2019 season Harper signed a 13 year / $330,000,000 contract with the Phillies, including a $20,000,000 signing bonus, $330,000,000 guaranteed, and an annual average salary of $25,384,615. In 2022, Harper will earn a base salary of $26,000,000, while carrying a total salary of $27,538,462.

Baseball clubhouses feature various food options for the players, including breakfast, lunch, pre-game and post-game meals.
