This is pretty cool. Here’s video from Jay-Z, himself, as he captures Derek Jeter’s historic 3000th hit yesterday in the Bronx. Below, you can check out his reaction to the accomplishment as well as his thoughts on the fan who caught the ball.
The 23 year old, Christian Lopez, simply gave the ball back to Derek Jeter and asked nothing in return. However, the Yankees are giving him box seats for the rest of the season and some other assorted items as a thank you. Estimates came in that the ball could have been sold at auction for around $250k. Insanity. As a 23 year old, would you have just given the ball back?
