"As part of the contract, the Reds give a ballpark suite for 10 games per year to the Joey Votto Charitable Foundation. He also has the ability to purchase a stadium suite for home games at a discount that is not specified.

He will donate 1 per cent of his base salary each year to charity, with half going to the Reds Community Fund and half to a charity of his choosing in the greater Cincinnati area."

Pretty cool to donate 1% of his salary each year to charity. May not seem like much, but that's a lot of money over 1/4 Billion. :lol:

The more info that comes out on Votto, the more I REALLY like him as a person.
