Griffey 600th HR Ball To Sell At Auction

The fan who says he caught the baseball that
Ken Griffey Jr. hit for his milestone 600th home run plans to sell
it at auction.
Joe Scherer says he decided to put the ball in the Aug. 1
auction after consulting with other people, including family and
friends.
Doug Allen, president of Mastro Auctions in suburban Chicago,
said Thursday he expects the ball to attract substantial bidding
interest. He says the Cincinnati Reds star has remained untainted
by the steroid era.
He thinks the ball will sell for at least $50,000, and as much
as $100,000.
There is still a potential obstacle to the ball's auction.
Another fan filed a lawsuit claiming the ball was ripped away from
him during the June 9 game in Florida.
