"To see Coach Judge walking into the kitchen, everyone was like, ‘Oh, what’s going on?' He shook my hand, thanked me, told me to thank my staff, and asked me to distribute it to everybody. He was grateful for all the hard work that we put in," Angelo Basilone, the team’s executive chef, told the paper.

Logan Ryan, one of the veterans on the team, told the Daily News it was one of the highest payouts of any team he’s ever been a part of.

"The number’s astronomically high. It’s the highest it’s been on any team I’ve ever been on in my career. And it’s helping a lot of people out, people who have kids, who are dealing with the stresses of COVID or whatever it may be," Ryan said.
