How Much Is It Worth To You?
"BOSTON -- Red Sox fans will never forget the moment. A ball is hit weakly to Keith Foulke, who picks it and underhands it to first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz, giving Boston its first World Series title since 1918.

And whatever happened to that baseball?

Mientkiewicz still has it. But the Red Sox want it back.

The Boston Globe reported that the team's CEO plans to ask Mientkiewicz to return the ball so it can be sent to a museum and shared with fans.

But the first baseman apparently has no intention of returning it. He says it's been stored in a safe deposit box as his 'retirement fund.'

And although Mientkiewicz has no immediate plans to sell the ball, he isn't ruling it out in the future.

The most expensive baseball in history was Mark McGwire's 70th homer, which went for $3 million. Mientkiewicz thinks the ball that ended 86 years of frustration for Red Sox fans will be worth even more."
