Recently asked what he would do if he caught Judge’s 62nd home run ball (which many believe could fetch at least $2-million on the open market right now), Jones provided an honest, very sensible answer.
The 79-year-old billionaire said he would return the ball to Judge if he had caught it. However, he did admit that his decision would obviously be different if he weren’t as rich as he currently is.
Via Friday’s interview on 105.3 The Fan:
“I think I’d like [Aaron Judge] to have it, the player, at the end of the day. Now, if I didn’t have any money … so it’s all relative.
“Let’s be real a little bit here. Your personality, your charitability, that will change on you when you’re broke.”
You bet your behind that Jerry’s tone would change if he weren’t already rich. After all, you don’t reach a net worth of over $15-billion by giving away $2-million baseballs for free.
As for the dude who caught the ball, he’s been identified, although it still remains to be seen what his plans are for Aaron Judge’s 62nd home run ball.
