D-backs fan who caught Corey Seager's first MLB home run trades it for ... a David Peralta autograph
Corey Seager is the truth. Since the Dodgers called him up to The Show, the phenom shortstop has lived up to the hype, going 14-for-34 at the plate with five doubles, eight walks and his first career home run ball, which his teammates celebrated with the customary enthusiasm you'd expect:
That dinger -- surely the first of many -- came on the road in a 9-5 Dodgers win over the D-backs on Saturday night. Which means that it was statistically probable to wind up in the possession of a D-backs fan at Chase Field. That fan made the potential souvenir available via trade and the D-backs kindly obliged, trading the fan a David Peralta signed baseball so that they could present Seager with the fruit of his labor.
On Monday's edition of Intentional Talk, Chris Rose and Kevin Millar had a bit of fun analyzing the balance in that transaction, suggesting that maybe the fan might have jumped the gun on the trade and might have been able to pull in a better package.
