Somebody Paid $24K For Jeter's Last Out Ball

The NOG (New Ownership Group) is nothing if not opportunistic. If there's a buck to be made, you can be assured that John Henry and crew will make it. So, when the opportunity came to auction off the ball from Derek Jeter's final MLB out (September 28, 2014), off went the NOG to the official MLB auction site. And, sure enough, some fool bid $24,025.00 for the spheroid. It's not clear where the proceeds will go—hopefully it will be to the Jimmy Fund.
