That's what I'd do, as I don't have much use for baseballs.
The one exception to the rule would be if I caught someone's milestone home run ball, in which case I'd hand the ball over to security in exchange for whatever the player in question was willing to trade. Honestly, though, if I had the chance to meet a Major League player to give him his home run ball, I'd probably settle for a picture and maybe a few minutes of small talk. To me, those experiences are worth more (emotionally) than a signed bat or ball.
