D-backs fan who caught Corey Seager's first MLB home run trades it for ... a David Peralta autograph
D-backs fan trades Seager HR ball for signed ball
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.
