Christian Lopez is the lucky fan who caught Derek Jeter’s 3000th hit, which happen to be a home run. Now Lopez is the dumb fan who gave it back for tickets and memorabilia.
Was it a nice gesture? Sure. Was it an idiotic move? Hell yes! Lopez just had a blank check land in his lap and he decided on doing the “nice” thing. I’m sorry, but that is just dumb. Lopez had in his possession the 3000th hit of Derek Jeter.
Not only is Jeter the only Yankee to ever hit 3000 he is one of the most beloved players of all-time! A world series MVP. An adored captain on the most historic team in maybe of all american sport and all he wanted was some signed balls and to meet Jeter!
Jeter is filthy rich and has been linked to some of the most beautiful women in the world. I’m sure life will still be good for him with or without the ball.
As for Lopez … he just gave away a chance at a better life.
