Fan Gave Jeter’s 3,000 Ball Back Because It Was ‘The Right Thing’

In the third inning of Sunday’s Yankees-Rays game, Derek Jeter hit a home run. It was the 237th home run of his career. But more importantly, it was the 3,000th hit of his career, and the fan who caught the ball passed up a big pay day to return it.
