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.
