Taunt the Reds Fan in Your Life: Carlton Fisk's World Series Home Run Ball for Sale

Thursday February 27th, 2014

The ball from Carlton Fisk's famous World Series Game 6 foul-pole home run is coming up for auction for the first time in 15 years.

For many years the ball was in the possession of Reds leftfielder George Foster, who caught the ball as it fell onto the field after hitting the foul marker. The ball was auctioned off in 1999 for $113,273, to Rick Elfman, who was in high school when he attended Game 6.

Now Elfman is looking to sell the ball, along with an autographed picture of the moment, with bidding opening at $100,000.
