If You Catch A Milestone Home Run Ball, Here’s A Guide On What You Should Ask For

This thread went down last week, and I still can’t stop thinking about it. @FakeDanUggla on Twitter went off with one of the greatest threads in the history of tweets – and quite possibly the history of thread – sharing what he would do with a milestone home run ball. We see it all the time. A player will hit a milestone home run and then want to keep the ball for themselves as if they’re that greedy doucher Tom Brady or something. So what do you ask for in return? Hopefully, more than just one Bitcoin and an autographed jersey like that one guy got from Brady. No, as FDU points out, you need to use that ball as leverage. Please read this whole thing. It might be the most important piece of writing since the Gettysburg Address.

That was amazing. I need a cigarette.
