The return of Chris Sale to the Boston Red Sox should’ve been an inspiring story for the team. The long-time ace coming back from injury to rally his team in the second half of the season. Unfortunately, his return to action was marred by a rather ugly incident during his rehab.
Most of you have probably seen Sale wrecking the Worcester Red Sox’ clubhouse after being pulled early in his rehab start. The Red Sox star threw a violent tantrum that saw him tear down multiple things from the wall. Sale earned a lot of criticism from fans regarding this behavior.

At the very least, though, it seems like Chris Sale has made amends with the Worcester organization. According to Dan Roche, here’s a list of things that the Red Sox star has done for the Triple-A team.
Chris Sale has already made amends for the previously broken TV that he took out his frustrations on Wednesday night @WooSox
He also spent over $6,000 on lunch and dinner for the players, coaches and staff. #RedSox @wbz
And he signed lots of stuff for the WooSox foundation.

The $6,000 lunch and dinner isn’t an uncommon sight in baseball teams, believe it or not. When injured players get assigned to the minors, they usually treat the team they played for to a hearty meal. New York Mets ace Max Scherzer did this for the Rumble Ponies when he was assigned there earlier this month.
The WooSox Foundation, on the other hand, is Worcester’s philanthropic organization. It’s nice to see that Sale is willing to take his time and create special items for the organization while he’s still there.
Hopefully, Chris Sale puts this ugly incident behind him once he eventually returns to the Boston Red Sox. The ace pitcher is clearly talented, and can carry his team to huge wins when absolutely needed.
