Giants Fan Returns Ball To NLCS Hero; Gets World Series Tickets
A lifelong Giants fan, Frank Burke caught the pennant-clinching walk-off home run ball hit by Travis Ishikawa. After getting the ball authenticated and then swarmed by fans so they could all take a picture with him and the ball, he returned the ball to Travis Ishikawa because he knew how tough a journey it was for Ishikawa to get where he was today. Although he gave it expecting nothing in return, he received a signed autographed bat from Ishikawa and got to take pictures with him!
However a few days later, the Giants organization called him and told him that he would be getting 4 free World Series Tickets!!!! That is awesome and a great sports story. This is why sports is the best.
