    Online bidder pays $103,579 for A-Rod's historic 500th homer ball

    A-Rod's 500th home run ball is going, going, gone!

    The ball smashed by the Yankee slugger on Aug. 4, 2007, to reach the historic milestone fetched $103,579 in an online auction that ended Thursday night.

    The sum, paid by an unknown bidder, is just a fraction of what was previously doled out for dingers hit before the rampant use of steroids by baseball players became widely known.

    But the ball is the most important one to be auctioned off since Barry Bonds' record-breaking 756th home run ball was sold for $752,467 in 2007, said David Kohler, owner of SCP Auctions, which carried out the sale.

    "You can even see where the bat hit the ball," Kohler said.

    The highest price ever paid for a baseball was $3 million for Mark McGwire's 70th home run ball that broke the single-season record in 1998.

    Roger Maris' 61st home run ball from 1961 previously sold for $5,000.
