You can now buy Jeffrey Maier's glove from the 1996 ALCS

Monday February 16th, 2015

A 12-year-old Yankee fan named Jeffrey Maier became a household name in the 1996 ALCS when he reached over the rightfield fence at Yankee Stadium to catch a ball hit by Derek Jeter. Despite Orioles rightfielder Tony Tarasco's objections, the umpire ruled it a home run.
