As I type this, PK is sitting on 1,999 hits. What if the 2,000th hit was a HR, like Derek Jeter's 3,000th hit, and YOU caught that ball?

What would YOU do with it?

Give it to Reinsdorf to let him present it to Paulie.

I would blow it up and then put the pieces of it in soup for people to eat.

I would give it back to Paulie. I'd ask for some autographed stuff and maybe some tickets in return. Tickets for NEXT year. :D:

I'd give it back to Paulie. In return, I'd only want an autographed ball and maybe a picture with Paulie, that would be pretty cool I think.

Ditto, though I would take an autographed jersey or bat instead, as I already have the autographed PaulieBall. If it was 3,000, then I would kind of hope for what Jeter gave out. :D:

This. Although, I'd want to mark the ball in some way, my initials or something, and I'd want the picture autographed as well as the ball.

I wouldn't catch it - I'd flex and let the ball hit me on the chest.

They would have to throw in some churros.

Get chicks. (Just like the guy who caught Barry Bonds' 756th home run.)

Tickets to the 2012 season and an autographed bat.

My friend said just a handshake from PK.

We had a lengthy argument about this today.

Give it to him, considering you wouldn't get squat for a 2000th hit ball that isn't hit by Derek Jeter, or any other Yankee.

PK is a classy guy.
I would hand it over with a handshake and a smile.

I would 1st see if Reinsdorf would buy it from me. (I'll take his money any day of the week) If he wouldnt buy it from me, I would just give to PK.

I'd give it to him with a request that he snap a few pics with me and the ball. I've always been one to prefer a photo over an autograph. Anyone could have got me the autograph but the photo is proof positive that I have met someone.

Take it out for a nice seafood dinner and then NEVER call it again

I'd give it to JR as long as he gave me a pair of Scout Seat tickets to a game of my choice next season.

Give it back to Konerko and maybe ask for an autograph and/or picture. It's his accomplishment and should be shared with all the Sox fans.

I'd also ask for a chance to pitch to Dunn to see if I could strike him out.

I don't know how you couldn't give it to him. I'd ask for some stuff in return, maybe have him sign a game used bat or something along those lines. Have whatever he signs with an inscription, "thanks for catching my 2000th" or something. Paulie is a class act. If it was someone like Bonds or Manny, than thats a different story...

Give it to him. I'd want to meet him. I don't necessarily collect memorabilia anymore, but if he gave me a bat or jersey that would be cool.

I'd trade it for an authentic 1977-era jersey, which I've always wanted.

I would trade it for a Bazooka Joe cartoon. I would also accept a game-worn jock strap.

If he wanted it, I'd give it to him. Even if I was a collector (I'm not), I can't imagine there's much of a market for someone's 2000th hit ball. It's a nice mile stone, but to put it in perspective, Juan Pierre is only 17 hits away from 2000! The great Mark Gruzielanek had 2040 hits in his career.

I sold Mark Grudzielanek's 2,000th hit for $500,000 dollars.

I'd give it to Adam Dunn to remind him that it is, in fact, possible to hit a baseball.

Not bad. I sold Brian Downing's 2000th hit ball for $525,000 and a lifetime supply of Churros. But that was back when $525,000 was real money.

I agree 100%. I have met Jeter a few times and I always wanted a photo over an a sig. It's nice to look at it and say hey I was with so and so rather than someone writing their name on something. Just my opinion.

Did you really?

Sad but actually a good idea.

Yeah, just give it to him. Be as classy to Paulie as he has been to the franchise. I would ask to meet him and shake his hand, maybe have him autograph a jersey, but I'm not an autograph collector so nbd.

Edit: I was sitting about 5 rows directly behind the lady who caught Frank's 400th and she gave it to an usher who returned with a signed bat or two. I'd have definitely wanted to meet Frank since I was wearing his jersey that night.
