Maybe it's just Jenks signing it because he pitched the final out. I'm not sure

Why do they have a Ron Santo ball up for auction with the rest of the Sox?

An opening bid of $195.00? Yeah, I don't think so.

Yeah, this doesn't make any sense. Bobby Jenks didn't make the final out, and we all saw that Paulie gave the ball to JR, so it can't be THE final out ball.
I think it's just a specially inscribed ball signed by Bobby in a fancy box.

I think we're supposed to interpret it...

Bobby Jenks (the man responsible for the) Final Out (for the) '05 Champs (and nevermind the amazing play by uribe, it was all me)

This is not THE ball. No way.

It is just a ball that happens to have Bobby Jenks sig on it. Read the discription.

It's stupid the Jenks would write "final out" on it.
Though I guess it never says final out of the world series, just final out.Did Jenks make the final out in any of the other games? I don't remember.

It says it's authenticated, so it must be the real thing. I wonder how many of them they're selling?:rolleyes:

Let's see: in four days, there are two bids, the current bid is $215.00, the bids are in $20 increments and nowhere is it mentioned that this was the final out of the bottom of the 9th of Game 4 of the 2005 World Series. It only says "final out." This could have been the final out of one of the other games or of an inning.....ahhhh, it's fun being a lawyer.

Jenks was pitching when the final out was made. That's probably the "Final Out" connection. It's likely an extra WS ball that Jenks autographed as the pitcher who pitched the final out.

DumpJerry, maybe if they let you look at the fine print... :tongue:

I was going to say, the ball looks awfully white to be an "actual" game used ball.

That's not the real ball. First, it looks way too white and brand new to have been used in a game. Second, the certification, I'm sure is for Jenks' signature, not the fact that it was the game ball. Third, if it was the actual ball that was used I'm sure the Opening bid would be more then 200 bucks. Last, I can't see MLB or the Sox laser engraving the ball that took 88 years to make.

It's just commerative, I'm sure, and is called the "Final Out" ball because Jenks was on the hill when it happened. I'm sure the real thing is still behind a sophisticated system of motion, heat, and audio sensors in Jerry's office. Maybe Tom Cruise could get it for you. :cool:

Maybe because he ended his career with the Sox.:o: He was horrible,BTW.
IIRC,Chuck Tanner made him into a 2B after he'd spent the previous 13 years playing 3B;Bill Melton was the Sox' 3B at the time.Lip,Labrum,help me out here.Am I right or close to being correct??:dunno:

Yea. It's an authentic Bobby Jenks signature on some random ball...

Which in turn means that it is a ripoff with a starting price of 195.00

Yeah, after playing a whopping total of 3 games at 2B before 1974, his lone year with the Sox and final of his career; Ronnie was the Sox's DH 47 times, second baseman 39, and third baseman 28. He also managed an incredible .221 BA and a whopping 5 homers.

Melton played 123 games at 3B, and had a .242/21/63 season.

I love when guys with 3-posts get on our site to post things for sale. I'm sure they are all die-hard Sox fans.

I doubt Tom Cruise could do it, he would probably end up jumping up and down on Jerry's couch which would set off the motion sensors.

No, he did not--Actaully PK had a hand in every out that clinched

Hey now, I was simply perplexed by what I had found. I was there. I saw PK give him the ball. :redneck
