    I don't know, it would be a decision I'd have to make right there, I think I'd let him have it but a few tickets and autographed balls..but I don't know for sure

    Why not stop at $70,000? I saw a house in Indian Hill that was $10 million, Im pretty sure Griffey would buy it for me.

    In the ensuing scramble, a husky man jumped over a row of seats and pinned a 4-year-old boy against the seats with his legs while diving to get the ball. To no avail, fans started chanting "Give him the ball! Give him the ball!"

    But the boy, who wasn't injured, ended up with much more than one ball. In the next few minutes, both teams sent bats and balls to the boy, including Cardinals outfielder Reggie Sanders coming out between innings to do so.

    "In my heart, I thought I should do something," said Sanders, who initially saw the incident on the clubhouse TV. "It's all about the kids."

    There was also a little extra for the man who got the ball, but he left two innings later and never received the Cardinals T-shirt on which "Tough Guy" and "Ball Stealer" was written by reliever Steve Kline.

    "I'm a big fan of giving kids balls. He was a real jerk about it," Kline said. "That's part of life, people like that in the world. They do something like that. I don't understand."

    Obviously none of you have to pay ridiculous amounts of child support.


    I'd definitely sell it, but I'd give Junior the first chance to buy it from me.

    Give it to Griff...personally

    That'd be worth more than money...it'd be something that would stay with you for the rest of your life.

    Plus, he hit the milestone, I didn't.

    For the record, that is not at all what happened. I've seen the video and the guy didn't even touch the kid. Maybe his pant leg brushed the kid's shirt, but it wasn't even enough contact for the kid to even know it happened. The kid was totally oblivious to what was going on until a bunch of whiny fans (and the kid's whiny mother) made a big deal of it.

    I think it's more than a baseball to the man who hit the milestone, IMO

    I'd sell it to Todd McFarland, since he'd probably overpay for it.

    I'm in debt up to my eyeballs, heck yeah I'd take the money.

    How about if the guy who caught Sosa's 500th at the GAB, catches Junior's?
