Maybe trading for a bag of balls isn't so far off


Recommended Posts

I saw this guy on ESPN news being interviewed last week. He was goofy as heck and seemed to be able to laugh at the joke.


I don't really see how it's a slap in the face, since he was in the indy leagues and couldn't go play for his team, so they did him a service by giving him to a new team while simultaneously pulling off a clever publicity stunt. He gets to go to a new team and they get publicity - sounds like a win-win to me.

The team has followed up with the Ripley Believe It or Not folks as mentioned in the article and will garner $10,000 for charitable purposes:
