Maier glove from 1996 ALCS to be auctioned
12-year-old deflected Jeter's game-tying HR in front of right-field wall during Game 1
Jeffrey Maier's glove from the 1996 American League Championship Series will be auctioned, according to The Associated Press.
Maier, then 12, deflected Derek Jeter's game-tying home run in front of the right-field wall in the eighth inning of the Yankees' Game 1 win.
Heritage Auction will put the glove up for bid on Saturday in New York. The owner of the glove, which was purchased from Maier, has not been identified.
Maier's attempted grab came from the seats above right fielder Tony Tarasco, who was unable to make a catch. Umpire Rich Garcia did not call fan interference, and the Yankees won in the 11th inning when Bernie Williams homered. Baltimore protested the game but was denied.
The Yankees went on to win the series, 4-1.
