We’re not quite at the Doug Mientkiewicz vs. Boston Red Sox stage. But there appears to be a dispute over rightful ownership of the final out baseball from the St. Louis Cardinals’ World Series title.
Adam Wainwright threw it. Yadier Molina caught it. Wainwright wants it. Molina isn’t quite ready to surrender it.
It’s a very clean ball that ended the 2006 World Series…likely worth a small fortune. As a new season approaches, Molina is backing away from his promise to give the valuable piece of baseball memorabilia to his teammate.
