The Oakland Athletics auctioned off the ball Hamilton dropped in the season finale last season in Oakland. The ball went for $1,280 according to Comcast Sports Net's Casey Pratt. Part of the proceeds went to charity.
For those who need a reminder, Hamilton dropped a fly ball in a 5-5 tie in Oakland in a game that would determine the winner of the American League West.
Texas led 5-1 going into the bottom of the fourth before the Athletics tied the game at 5. Yoenis Cespedes then hit a fly ball that Hamilton should have caught. He didn't and two runs scored. Oakland went on to win 12-5.
There's no word if the St. Louis Cardinals want to add to the open wound of Texas fans by auctioning off the Game 6 ball from the 2011 World Series that Nelson Cruz couldn't catch.
