Griffey offers up prize package in exchange for 600th HR ball

Another person is in the running for Ken Griffey Jr.’s 600th home run ball – Griffey himself. According to, Griffey has made an offer to Joe Scherer for the ball. As of now, Scherer plans to sell the ball through Mastro Auctions in an Aug. 1 sale. Griffey has reportedly offered Scherer some of his game-used articles, items that came from other players and an all-expense-paid trip to New York for next week’s All-Star break. The three-day, three-night vacation would include tickets to all the Yankee Stadium events, including the All-Star Game and Home Run Derby. There’s still a possible legal battle over the ball, as Justin Kimball has filed suit to block the sale of the ball in Miami-Dade County court, but a temporary restraining order to block the sale of the ball wasn’t upheld by the court.
