Perks for pro athletes

Patrick Hruby of ESPN writes about the perks available to professional athletes.

Barry Bonds, for example, lords over four lockers and a $3,000 black leather massage recliner in the San Francisco Giants’ clubhouse; his teammates enjoy single lockers and standard-issue folding chairs

Barry’s locker room setup is a big deal here in San Francisco. While other players may receive perks such as a luxury box or a limo ride to every game, it is not as visible as locker room pampering. Stars such as MVP Jeff Kent had to look at Barry’s setup every day.
