Some Home Run Derby Balls Will Carry 24-Karat Gold

By Cam Martin 

Monday’s Home Run Derby will occasionally feature balls with a 24-karat gold panel, which should make things interesting in the stands when these balls (suggested retail price, $149.99) land among some souvenir-seeking fans. When each participating hitter is down to the last out in each round, the gold-paneled Rawlings balls will be introduced.

Witnessing the potential scrums might actually make the Home Run Derby worth watching. But why only for the last out of each round? Use them on every pitch! Come on, whip that crowd into a frenzy!
