When 24-year-old Jameson Sutton went to Coors Field with his parents last September, glove in hand, they bought him a single seat in the front row in left-center field.
Who knows, they said, he might even catch a ball.
Before three outs had been recorded, Sutton made the catch of a lifetime.
The ball Barry Bonds hit for his record 762nd home run, the last home run hit by Bonds, was snared by Sutton after a struggle with another fan.
Estimated to be worth as much as $1 million by memorabilia experts, the ball will be put up for auction online for 13 days beginning March 31 at scpauctions.com.
Todd McFarlane, the collector who paid $3 million for Mark McGwire's then-record 70th home run of the 1998 season, told The Times last week that he would go as high as $1 million for 762.
