Every silver lining has a cloud
The legal nightmare that began when Alex Popov caught Barry Bonds's record-setting 73rd home run ball just keeps rolling along. A California appellate court has frozen Popov's share of the proceeds of the ball's sale, some $225,000, because he ran up legal bills of about twice that amount during the litigation over who owned the ball.
Popov, expecting the ball to sell for well over $1 million, allegedly refused to enter into a contingent fee agreement with his lawyer, Martin Triano, but wanted to pay by the hour.
