Good call, nice carrot for PK.

Hold on to it. Wait until he gets an offer to meet PK in person so that he can get a few pics and maybe an autographed bat and jersey. Its worth that, at the very least.

They offered him an autographed ball and bat at the game - guess it wasn't enough.

Only give the ball back if Paulie agrees to a contract extension with the Sox.

"I'm thinking that if Paul really wanted it, you know, I would entertain that. I just would, because I can understand -- it's a grand slam ball in the World Series," he said.
PK hasn't officially said he wants the ball. What I get from this quote is that if he says he wants it, the person will give it to him.

I would want more than a bat and ball... I mean come on... think about if you had this ball... how hard would it be to give it up... think about having that ball in your Sox Collection.

team signed bat,ball, jersey
PK signs contract with sox
I get to go to remaining games of the WS, expenses paid.
throw out the first pitch opening day
season tickets

With the contract he's looking at next year... he could do better than a bat and ball.

Nope a ball and bat are not enough IMO.

If it was me...ball, bat, jersey and get to meet the team.

A fan should be rewarded and the above items cost nothing to the player or the team but the ball is priceless.

as much as i want to pay off my student loans, i think i would still give the ball back. i'm sure the sox would give the guy something in return if he gave it back. they know how important that ball is to the club's history.

That part wasn't reported in the story, so I'd say that's hearsay, at least for now. If that's true that he was offered that and turned it down, he's a fool. Its not like it was Bonds' homerun record ball or something.

No it was only the PK World Series grand slam ball, which is the only one is White Sox History.
