Indians Trainer

As Major League Baseball started spring training in Arizona and Florida, one Cleveland Indians trainer by the name of Michael Salazar was probably dreading its start.

Why you ask? Salazar had made a bet with strength and conditioning coach Joe Kessler regarding the BCS National Championship Game between Notre Dame and the University of Alabama back in January. Michael lost the bet after he sided with the Irish and had to pay up by donning an Alabama hat and red Speedo while tending to players in Goodyear, Arizona last Friday.

The original bet only needed Salazar to don the hat and Speedo but Indians pitcher Justin Masterson decided to make the bet even more memorable by stealing Michael’s shirt:



This is why I never make bets….

    Wow, I would not have any confidence in that trainer…betting for Notre Dame against Alabama. I thought trainers were supposed to be smart.
