Fate of A-Rod's 3,000th Hit Ball up in the Air

Zack Hample, who has written a book about catching home runs and has snagged 8,161 of them, says ‘I want to enjoy the moment’ after catching the historic hit from Alex Rodriguez. The fan at Yankee Stadium who wound up with the ball that Alex Rodriguez launched for his 3,000th hit is holding on to the prized souvenir. For now, anyway. Hample told the Associated Press, “At first, I was 100% adamant about not giving the ball back. Now, I’m thinking about it."
