Meh. It belongs in the Hall I guess.

You got to be kidding me. Why the hell wouldn't Fields hand the ball to Buehrle as soon as possible.

Because Buehrle was being mugged by every media outlet known to man.


Buehrle would have given it to MLB, I hope. You own the perfect game in the record books, and an exhibit in the Hall of Fame is one step below being actually inducted into it.

I know, and it should be in the HOF, but it should have been Buehrle's doing, not Fields.

If you're a young guy that doesn't know the drill, and in the heat of a moment like that an MLB Official comes up to you and asks for the ball, you might do the same. Let's not act like we'd all have the presence of mind to tell the guy, "No."

Either way, I believe they would give it back to Buehrle if he wants it.

According to the Sun Times, he'll get the ball back when they come back home.
