Coach football. Fly to New York from Wyoming. Catch a home run ball through a net at Yankee Stadium. Sell it for big bucks.
America…what a country!
Steve Harshman has been busy this fall.
Coaching Natrona County High School’s football team (they’re 3-3).
Representing the good people of the Casper area in the Wyoming legislature.
He also found time to catch the last game ever at Yankee Stadium. His seats weren’t the greatest–or so he may have thought. But when Harshman snared the ball that wound up being the last home run ball ever hit at the ballpark, he found he had a golden ticket.
After bringing the ball back home and pondering his options for a few days, Harshman decided to sell. Word from New York is that he’s consigned it to Guernsey’s, which will offer it with other Yankee Stadium artifacts–and a 1912 World Series trophy–next month.
