Don't Feed the Greed? What does that mean...

Returning Jeter's 3000th Hit? Ethics and Baseball

Rate this Entry
Hey all,

Baseball is a form of theater. For example, we have our small-market Rebellion battling against The Evil Empire. These are the Meta narratives that we construct, in order to make sense and meaning out of a box score, or a trip to the ballgame with peanuts and Cracker Jacks with our children, or a beer with the guys.

So, take a break from the Hot Stove League, and consider (don't ponder, us Viking fans have done enough of that!), consider the question of Jeter's 3000th hit, and one fan's response.

What would you do? Click on the link below:

    If it's Jeter's 3,000th hit, I sell the ball. If it's Mauer's....I may keep it or return it. Depends on what you think of the player who hit the ball. I think that if you return a ball though, you should decline any compensation from the athlete. The PR boost for them helps, but I think it's more honorable. People get credited as 'doing the right thing' by giving it back when they really are getting something back (even if hardly anything value wise).
