I wonder who bought it. If it was a fan from California the Rangers beat writers would have to question where the scoreboard stands on whose fans are the best, seeing as though they are obsessed with that these days.
As for that ball: I guess you can look at it one of two ways. The game was tied 5-5 when Hamilton dropped it, giving the A’s a 7-5 lead, so perhaps it is symbolic and meaningful. At the same time, the A’s scored five more runs after that, so it’s not like Hamilton’s error was decisive either. It was part of a total team failure, really. Even if Hamilton is the one that gets all the grief for it.
