Last night’s game six was just the 11th World Series game in the last 50 years to end with a walk-off home run. One St. Louis Cardinals fan caught last night’s home runs, and rather than keep the historic memento, or sell it, he returned the ball.

In exchange for returning the ball, Dave Huyette received a bat autographed by David Freese, a ball autographed by the entire team, and the opportunity to hang out in the clubhouse after the game and meet some of the players.

After the game, Huyette explained how he fought off the crowd and retrieved the ball…

“…what I did was shove it down my pants right away. I don’t think anyone realised I had it.”

And maybe the best part of this story is Huyette’s friend who accompanied him to the Cardinals clubhouse. He was wearing a t-shirt of the Cardinals hated-rival, the Chicago Cubs.
