In baseball, players keep the physical balls used when they record certain personal achievements, like a batter’s first hit or a pitcher’s 1000th strikeout. When it’s a home run ball, teams will often negotiate with fans to retrieve the ball in question, offering up autographed memorabilia or tickets to future games in exchange for the ball in question.
