Hearing about this story got me thinking: https://twitter.com/Indians/status/605946305274191872/photo/1

If you were fortunate enough to have something like this happen to you, what would you demand in exchange for the ball, or would you just give it back without demanding anything?

Side question: What would you do with a 50 gallon drum of lube?

The ball is yours once you catch it, so there is no ransom. I'd sell it for a high price. At least about $20,000, judging by the combined item value on that list. It's just a ball to me and clearly has more value to someone else. So I'm willing to let them pay to obtain the ball from me.

50 gallon drum of lube....

I'd rent one of those massive air-filled bouncy houses, preferably one equipped with slides and stuff, and douse all the horizontal surfaces with lube. Put it on the front lawn, turn on the sprinklers, and have a house party.

They can take the iPads and the Macbooks on the road with them, that's why. Teammates being teammates

I would demand they bring me the worlds biggest lobster

As for the lube I would bring a bottle of some of it with me every time I go to a water park so I can go super fast on the water slides and hopefully not die

$5,000 OR an iPad? Last I checked, $5,000 is more than an iPad lol.

I'd settle for a Klondike bar, maybe a handful of pennies, if they were super shiny.

It's incredibly unlikely I'd ever be at a baseball game. But if that happened and one can demand extravagant things, I'd demand a large amount of money.
