I understand his choice but come on son. This ball would of made him BREAD for years. Bad move on his part. The only thing good that can come from this is if somehow (by some chance) Jeter makes friends with the dude and keeps contact. Then it's worth it. But seeing how that most likely isn't going down (apart from the meeting that is going to happen) that 250k+ sounds too good to pass up.

Does this guy have a wife? I hope she beats the sh*t out of him. sh*t could have changed his life. Who the fu*k cares about some Yankee tickets? sh*t aint even lifetime tickets. Shaking Jeter hand aint gonna pay the bills. fu*k a Jeter. Jeter dont give a sh*t about his a.ss. Man I wanna kick this guys a.ss. His kids would be set for college and everything. If Jeter wants the ball back tell him to be the highest bidder or gtfo

As a 23-year-old cell phone salesman, Christian Lopez had thousands of reasons to hold out for the highest bidder on the baseball from Derek Jeter's(notes) 3,000th hit. In fact, some estimates put the ball's worth at $250,000, money that the recent graduate from St. Lawrence University could have certainly used.

And yet when New York Yankees officials found Lopez after he corralled Jeter's historic home run, the only thing that the big Yankees fan wanted was to return the ball to the man who had hit it.

Yes, Lopez was willing to just give away what seemed like a sure lottery ticket



That's a pretty nice gesture, no doubt. But lest you think the Yankees were just going to take the ball away without any compensation, they rewarded Lopez's generosity with a pretty nice package. According to Kay, Lopez will receive four tickets to a suite for every remaining game at Yankee Stadium this season (including any possible playoff games) plus first row Legends Suite tickets to Sunday's game. He will also receive an a.ssortment of bats and jerseys, plus the opportunity to meet Jeter.

Update: And, topping it off, a 5-4 Yankees victory in which Jeter drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth to cap a 5 for 5 day in the batter's box. Lopez was a guest of honor at one of the best Yankees games of the season.

Not a bad haul for someone who was at the game on birthday tickets he received from his girlfriend. And while there are going to be plenty of people who question his decision, I'm guessing that the integrity Lopez showed in returning the ball to Jeter is going to benefit him in his life and future career as well.

What would you have done?




Cant stand the Yanks, but thats one hell of a thank you package
damn that thank you package is nice as hell
