Davis wasn't optimistic about his chances for getting the ball he hit for his 50th back, saying, "I think this is probably a tough crowd to get a ball back. I didn't see the ball get thrown back, but hopefully we can rustle it up."
But nevertheless, it found a way to return to him. The ball ended up in the hands of a Blue Jays fan, and Ellicott City, Md. native Steve Houff and his friends talked their way into getting it back to Davis. Houff paid 100 (American) dollars to get it back and was one in a group of five Oriole fans who traveled up from Maryland for the game. For their efforts they got to meet the man himself:
"We're here the whole weekend," Houff said. " Hopefully, we will catch 51 tomorrow."
