Selfless Jeter Fan

Posted on | July 13, 2011 | No Comments

By now everyone has heard of Christian Lopez.  He is the 23 year old Yankee fan that caught Derek Jeter’s home run ball that also happened to be his 3000 hit!  When I first heard about it, I was surprised at how selfless he was to just give back the ball.  He did get some nice gifts in exchange: luxury seats for the remainder of the season and autographed memorabilia.  I have to admit that I might have initially done the same figuring it was the right thing to do.  Now, it appears that he is getting some financial assistance to offset the tax implications.  After thinking about Christian’s situation for a couple of days.  I think he could have worked out a better deal.  Look at the deal Steiner sports worked out.  Heck, the are even planning on digging up dirt and selling it to fans.  The gifts are nice but if I were him, I would have asked to get my student loans repaid.  He has over 100k in debt!  I hope he is able to pay down his debt with the donations he receives.
