For This Waiter, A Ticket To The World Series Was Likely 'The Best Tip Ever'

A fellow employee called it the "best tip ever." And if you're a baseball fan, that would be hard to argue.

Ryan O'Connor was working the lunch shift at Rock & Brews near Kansas City, Missouri, on Tuesday, when he received the home run of gratuities: a ticket to the World Series opener. The tip was left by Katelyn Davis, the wife of Royals relief pitcher Wade Davis, KMBC reports.

"I started to walk away when I dropped off their check after they paid, and they said 'Hold on, I was going to give you a tip, but instead we thought you might want this," O'Connor told the station.

SB Nation notes some tickets were going for more than $1,000.

Unfortunately, the Royals lost to the San Francisco Giants Tuesday night. Still, the gift sure beats this tip from Eagles running back LeSean McCoy.
