It appears that Doug Mientkiewicz has sealed the ball he caught from Keith Foulke ending the World Series in a safe deposit box for security and future sale, calling it his "retirement fund". Larry Lucchino and the Sox’ ownership want it back. So who gets the ball? Do we have another player vs. ownership battle brewing?
First vote, from me, goes (reluctantly) to ownership, with the stipulation that they must then send the ball off to either the HOF or put it on indefinite display at Fenway, simultaneously bequeathing any money from a future sale of that ball to an organization like the Jimmy Fund.
