So the chap who caught the great Ken Griffey Jnr's 600th home run shot is caught in two minds as to what to do with the ball itself.
I am with Marlins outfielder Cody Ross on this one. "Come on, this is a baseball - Just give it back to Griffey.'' He also suggested; ''Get an autograph from him or get to meet him.'' Both more savoury options than an ugly auction for a ball that he had nothing to do with until it landed in his lap, literally.
The whole thing is pretty insane.
Griffey achieved something amazing by hitting that ball for his 600th home run, something truly incredible. It will define his great career, assuming he doesn't go on a crazy tear and make it to 700! The ball belongs to Ken Griffey Jnr. Not some chug monkey who happened to be in the right place at the right time.
As they chant at Wrigley when an opposition player hits a bomb into the bleachers...
Throw it back. Throw it back. Throw it back....
Well, give it back...
