NEW YORK (AP) The glove Jeffrey Maier used to pull Derek Jeter's famous home run over the wall during the 1996 AL Championship Series against Baltimore has been sold at auction for $22,705.

Heritage Auctions says the glove was purchased by an anonymous collector Saturday night, with no mention of what the buyer plans to do with it. When Heritage announced the auction on Monday, it didn't identify the owner, who it said had purchased the glove from Maier.

Maier was a 12-year-old fan in the right-field stands on Oct. 9, 1996, when he reached over the outfield fence at Yankee Stadium and got his glove on Jeter's eighth-inning drive, preventing Tony Tarasco from catching it.
