Two Red Sox fans decided to split the cost of some raffle tickets at Fenway Park on Friday . . . and ended up winning $18,000.  What makes this story even better is that the men were PERFECT STRANGERS.

One was from Massachusetts and the other was from California, and they just happened to be sitting next to each other.  When the 50/50 raffle came up, they decided to go in together, and split the prize if they won.

Their identities weren’t revealed, but they did pose for a picture together.  The team said, quote, “The 50/50 made lifelong friends for these two and their families.”
