Fans who latch onto a piece of baseball history in Cleveland can expect a visit from kindly Rick Danburg, the club’s official memorabilia negotiator.
He’s part used car salesman, part counselor, part guilt trip layer-on-er. Cleveland Indians’ staffer Rick Danburg keeps an eye out for baseballs that wind up in the hands of fans.
He won’t ask for a foul ball or a generic home run ball. But if you’ve got something the player–or the Hall of Fame–might want, he’s armed with autographs and ready to negotiate a trade.
It’s the same elsewhere, where clubs hope fans are open to a little wheeling and dealing at the ballpark.
