I still think the guy should have sold the ball to Jeter. He would still be the guy that caught it and probably 250k better off. Steiner and/or Jeter would never have missed the money. Thanks for posting the story...

This reads more like a payback from a writer that didn't get an exclusive interview with Jeter. It's in the Opinion section of the paper...and you know what they say about opinions.

Default Good read

There are always two sides to every story but I have to admit this one is pretty good and hats off to the writer. I am still hopefull the right things will be done and do think this kid is going to get a lot of good to come his way because of his actions, atleast I hope so...........

Agreed Johnny.....but that bird in the hand always looks pretty good too!!

Unfortunately, I could almost see me doing what the kid did.....then saying "DOH!!" the next day

Leon - I was thinking the same thing you wrote, I could see myself doing that if it was someone on the team I follow that hit 3,000 and I caught it. However, if I was Jeter I could also see myself doing exactly what the opinion writer said as well - giving the guy a $25,000 or more check and insisting he cash the thing. I thought it was a good article and I wish other writers would have the guts to say similar things. Unfortunately if they did they'd forever forfeit their chance to interview one of those guys ever again.

C'mon guys, this is a no win situation for Jeter. If he takes that ball as a gift, he's a money grubbing jerk. If he quietly offers the guy money (fill in the amount) so that he won't have to pay taxes he's a jerk because nobody knows. If he publicly offers the guy money (fill in the amount) he's a jerk because it wouldn't be enough and the poor guy would have to pay taxes on the amount.
Too bad Roger Maris isn't alive so that they could compare notes about the wonderful NY press.

I disagree, the kid did the right thing so why can't he ? We all have to pay taxes and you seriously don't think his acct wouldn't find a way to write it off if he gave it as a gift ? Or just outright bought it ? Jeter is paying taxes on all the merchandise they sell right ? The kid is gonna have to pay taxes on anything in any amount so that is a mute point. I do think the kid is gonna be alright and see a nice payday coming for him over the next couple years in advertisments and sponsers, but it doesn't look good that Jeter has done nothing for him when the kid did everything for him. And this is coming from a HUGE Jeter fan who agrees he owes no one anything but it comes to a point of doing the right thing which as far as I know he has done nothing.
