    I know some find these type of stats silly, however, I get a good kick out of them:

    I know it was a total different game, however, it's funny how Cap Anson is fourth on that list with 2075 career RBI while only hitting 97 career home runs.

    A nitpicking asshole copy editor would ask if he was the fifth player to homer for his 2,000th RBI.

    He is also the fifth player with 1,997, 1,998, and 1,999 RBI.

    Last tweet sounds like the first 14 minutes of a Perry Mason episode.

    Like Pujols doesn't have 500 of these type of balls. For fucks sake, every other week, he has some stupid milestone he is passing, while simultaneously being horrible at baseball in 2019. Fuck Pujols and the angels. If they wanted the ball that bad, offer something more than some stupid chachkis.

    Actually, Pujols seems fine with it.
    He said the game is for the fans, and a fan has it. Can't do the link on my phone.

    Why? He caught the ball. (I'm assuming based on the Tweet, though maybe he got it after bouncing around a bit.) It's his. It's not like he was doing something to authenticate it and make sure he could sell it for a significant amount of money.

    If Pujols said it is fine, as poin posted, then he has the right attitude.

    A fan catches ball story from long ago: When I was a kid, the DuPont company where my dad worked had once or twice a season excursion trains from Wilmington, Del. to Phillies games at old Connie Mack Stadium (Phils' owner Bob Carpenter was a DuPont family heir). One of those, when I was like 9 or 10, was to see the Cardinals. Our group's seats were roughly halfway down the line between first and the right field foul pole in the lower level. Stan Musial came to the plate early in the game and whacked a screaming foul liner. One of our group leaned over the low railing between stands and field and made a spectacular one-handed grab. On the train ride home, he triumphantly showed off the ball, which Stan had autographed. Stan, feeling it was the least he could do, also autographed the emergency cast that completely covered the guy's hand.
