Buy A-Rod's 500th home run ball while it's somewhat hot

Jan 12, 2010, 10:29 PM EDT

Come buy an A-Rod souvenir! This from AP:

The ball Alex Rodriguez hit for his 500th home run will be auctioned off online.

SCP Auctions said bidding will begin Jan. 20 for the ball recovered by a college student at the old Yankee Stadium when A-Rod hit No. 500 on Aug. 4, 2007.

Considering A-Rod will probably hit at least another 300 home runs in his career – provided he stays healthy and avoids Madonna (is that redundant?) – buying his 500th home run ball will be the equivalent of purchasing, from a math standpoint anyway, Walt Weiss’ milestone 16th home run ball.

Just saying.

    Why this idiot will come out in a few years and admitt he used roids all the way. I will sign any Baseball that you want I didnt use roids to hit my bombs.
    Anyone buying anything from the past ten years of the biggest joke of a sport is just a plain fool!

    if his balls touched Madonna he is in BIG trouble ……

    You think he is going to hit 300 more homers. More like 100 more homers, if he stays healthy, Dhs more, and avoids too much Roid withdrawel.
