Being a professional athlete in Boston has a few perks, to say the least.

A free steak dinner or two from Abe and Louie’s every now and then, perhaps? Some chowder and oysters from Union Oyster House, maybe? A few growlers on the house from the Harpoon Brewery? Not to mention unlimited cocktails from Daisy Buchanan’s. These are all pretty standard (we assume) for pro athletes in The Hub, but it’s not just good eats and tasty libations that Bruins, Red Sox, Celtics and Patriots players get to enjoy as heroes of our sports-crazed region.

Since¬†it is Title Town, these athletes often get to enjoy championships won even if it’s not their team hoisting the hardware. The Bruins watched the Red Sox win the World Series on Wednesday night and were able to check out the trophy in person on Thursday night when they hosted the Ducks.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
