    Maris's 60th Home Run Ball and What If...

    Looking back, we've all see Roger Maris's 61st home run:

    ...and...we've all seen the stories of the fan who caught Maris's 61st home run ball:

    Additionally, we've all seen Aaron Judge's 60th Home Run:

    ...and...we've all seen the fan who secured Aaron Judge's 60th Home Run:

    But what about Maris's 60th ome run ball?
    Apparently, no fan secured Maris's 60th home run because it appears to have caromed off the Yankee Stadium upper deck structure, as shown in the following video, and landed back down in right field where it appears to have been thrown back to the dugout and picked up by Joe DeMaestri, #20, at the front of the dugout, also shown in the video:

    So, now, the questions remains:
    Who will secure Aaron Judge's 61st home run if it happens?
    Additionally, who will secure Aaron Judge's 62nd home run if it happens?
    ...and...if indeed any fan is fortunate enough to secure either or both of the 61st and 62nd home run balls, what will that fan do with it?

    What if it were you? What would you do?

    I know what Maris told the guy who caught his 61st HR when he tried to return it to Roger after that game. Roger told him to sell it and not to worry because whoever bought it would hold it for awhile and then give the ball back to him. Which is exactly what happened.

      Just curious...would you return Aaron Judges 61st or 62nd if you secured it?

      I have to be honest, I don't think I would.

      But then again, being at the Stadium given the emotions at the moment I secured it, I just might return it.
      I guess until it were to happen (which it never will for me anyway), I just don't know what I'd do.

        I don't care who catches it as long as it's not Zack Hample.
        I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd, when they said "sit down" I stood up.

          Good point. I totally agree.

            Right now he is on the West Coast. So Judge needs to hit it tonight.
