Griffey 600th Home Run Baseball Dispute

Looks like we might have another case about everyone's favorite fugitive resource.  From CNN.com:

Controversy ensued in the stands following the home run. Justin Kimball, a 25-year-old from Miami, said he caught the home run ball, put it in a wool cap and then had the cap ripped from his hands. Kimball said someone ran off with the ball.

Police said they had found the fan with the baseball and would look at video tape to see if Kimball's claims could be supported.

However, the Florida Marlins announced Major League Baseball had authenticated the home run ball for a middle-aged male fan who would only give his first name as Joe.

FYI, I know the guy that caught Eddie Murray's 500th homerun ball....he since has been indicted...seriously. Got caught in a scheme to hire illegal aliens at his temp staffing agency. Pled guilty in a plea deal. Total moron.

Lesson? Seems that few of the folks gaining notoriety at the ballpark ever end up on the plus side. (Morganna notoriously excepted!)
