500th Home Run Ball No Longer a Treasure?

It was one of those milestone home run balls, snared in the stands by an unassuming fan. What a difference a year can make.

It was a big deal a year ago when Manny Ramirez’ 500th home run ball was caught by a fan who passed up a payday and returned it.

A lot has happened since then.

From loved to despised, then loved again and now on that "other" list, Manny changed teams.

Damon Woo, the fan who caught the ball in Baltimore and gave it back is still happy with his decision.

But what about the ball itself? It’s still worth something, even with Manny’s troubles. He got it back from Woo and then promised to auction it for charity.

Rob Bradford of WEEI in Boston caught up with Woo about his fifteen minutes of fame.
