Cardinals' P John Lackey got Pat Neshek a Babe Ruth autograph for switching uniform numbers
The St. Louis Cardinals newest addition John Lackey got fellow pitcher Pat Neshek a baseball autographed by Babe Ruth to thank him for giving up the #41 uniform when he arrived from Boston.
Also on Extra Mustard: Bob Costas had some trouble with a first pitch, so he asked for another try

Considering autographed Babe Ruth baseballs can fetch $25,000 in today's market, it is a pretty handsome reward for switching jersey numbers, although the awesomeness of the gift probably far exceeds the price tag.
