Unpretentious? Or Idiotic? 

From The Plain Dealer:

Former Tribe third baseman Travis Fryman called the Indians ticket office recently and purchased 50 tickets so his Mount Olive church group from Pensacola, Fla., could attend a game at Jacobs Field this homestand.

Fryman could have reached out to the PR department and had the club pick up the tab. That Fryman paid his own way didn't surprise anyone in the organization.

When he retired, Fryman returned his guaranteed $625,000 buyout to the Indians.
I mean, yeah, it's nice he paid for the tickets, but why the hell would he return $625,000 to the club. If I were his agent I'd have smacked him.
