The Reds make their players pay for WiFi while traveling


Stephanie Apstein has a brilliant expose of one of the key components of Major League Baseball operations: in-flight WiFi while teams travel, and who foots the bill for such extravagance. In all seriousness, it's a pretty funny look at something that sounds trivial but has become such a mainstay in our lives that it's impossible to escape. And, in the process, she discovered that only two teams in the game don't pay for their players to have internet access while traveling - the mighty New York Yankees and your Cincinnati Reds. Two ends of the financial spectrum, meaning two differing reasons as to why they don't foot that bill. The Reds!
