Recognize this guy? That’s Christian Lopez, the lucky fan who snagged Derek Jeter’s home run for hit No. 3,000. Eleven days after making a name for himself, he’s still reaping the benefits. It appears he’s spending the day with Steiner, doing memorabilia type things.
He also autographed a DJ3K ball with a note, “I caught DJ3K.” You can purchase that ball here for $34.99 (just type in your email address to view it).
If you didn’t hear, Brandon Steiner, founder and chairman of Steiner Sports, estimated Jeter’s 3,000th hit ball would have sold for $200,000-300,000.
