Fan hit in arm with Paul Goldschmidt's 100th home run ball, gets bat in exchange

Fan trades Goldy's 100th home run ball for bat

On Wednesday night, Paul Goldschmidt hit his 100th career home run: 


That's an attention-getter all on its own, but the ball itself collided with a Dodgers fan in right-center field. Think of it as a friendly little "hey buddy" punch in the arm. Clearly, the ball was just trying to introduce him to a cool bat it knew. The plan must have worked, because said fan later traded his souvenir for a piece of lumber: 

Good job, home run ball. You're the greatest memorabilia matchmaker of them all.
