Red Sox, Patriots among those with unclaimed property

BOSTON (AP) – This may be a case of the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots leaving it in the bank instead of on the field.

Massachusetts Treasurer Deb Goldberg says the two sports teams are among the many names on the most recent list of businesses and individuals with unclaimed property.

Goldberg says more than 57,000 new properties worth millions of dollars have been added to the state’s list.

Unclaimed property can include forgotten bank accounts, stocks and dividends, and the contents of safe deposit boxes that are turned over to the state after being abandoned for three years.

The treasurer says about one in every 10 residents is owed money.

She says her office returned $114 million to its rightful owners last year.
