Luckily for Yadier Molina, Adam Wainwright is a pretty laid back guy. Otherwise, the fate of the final out baseball from last year’s World Series could make for an ugly tug-of-war.
The exploding value of history-making sports memorabilia has players wise to the value of things like the ball that clinched a World Series. Adam Wainwright shut the door on the Tigers with a strikeout last October.
Even though the closer usually gets the ball back from the catcher as a momento, Molina stuck it in his pocket and isn’t letting go. He’s not saying much but Wainwright and coach Dave Duncan have a few thoughts on the matter.
