Fan who returned Jeters 3000 hit ball gets rewarded


Christian Lopez and Derek Jeter



Christian Lopez is he lucky guy who caught Derek Jeter’s 3000th hit ball, which happened to be a home run.  Estimates say that the ball may be worth up to $250,000, but Lopez willingly gave the ball back to Jeter.  He was not seeking a reward but the Yankees gave him one anyway.  Lopez received 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 today’s game.   That ain’t bad for a guy who originally received the game tickets as a birthday gift from his girlfriend.  You can read the full story HERE.

Where Is The Ball? – photo

This photo was featured as one of the best sports photos of the day by Sports Illustrated on April 19, 2011.  The photo captures LeBron James and Jrue Holiday battling for a loose ball, but if you look carefully, I don’t see the ball, and it appears that they don’t either.

The photo was taken by Heinz Kluetmeler

Outstanding Save by Tim Thomas – video

Tim Thomas of the Boston Bruins pulled off what some are calling the hockey save of the year. It is very impressive and he did rob the guy of a sure goal, but I’ll hold off before calling it the save of the year. What do you think?

I’ve looked a this play several times and I still can’t tell if the right call was made, but as for Felix’s reaction, that was way out of order.

This middleschool trick football play has gained worldwide fame

The Driscoll Middle School team pulled off one of the best trick plays you’ll ever see. Late in the third quarter, with Driscoll down 6-0, the Wynn Seale defense was called for a 5-yard penalty which led to a respotting of the ball. Before the next snap, quarterback Jason Garza loudly told the center that the refs were marking off 5 more yards. That led to the play that you see above.

Give that kid an Oscar for his great acting performance!
