On Wednesday evening, Queens native Matt Murphy decided to pay a visit to AT&T Park prior to leaving for a flight to Australia. That decision could prove to be one of the smartest of Murphy's life. When Barry Bonds hit that 756th home run to right center field, Murphy fought the crowds and emerged victorious with the historic baseball.
This morning, Murphy appeared on the show to talk about his amazing catch and what he plans to do with the famous baseball.
The baseballs from previous record setting home runs have garnered a decent amount of money, to say the least. Estimates on the Bonds 756 baseball are running as high as a half million dollars. But in light of the controversy over the legitimacy of Barry Bonds's as the record holder, does that change the value of the baseball? Will a "tainted baseball" be prized in the same way as previous baseball memorabilia? What do you think?
