David Ross 2013 ALCS Game 5 Hit Ball

After sitting for games 2, 3 and 4 of the 2013 ALCS and watching the Tigers even the series at 2-2, Ross strode to the plate in the second inning of pivotal game 5 in Detroit. With Gomes on third and Bogaerts on second, Ross lashed this ball on a 1-0 pitch from Anibal Sanchez into the left field corner for a double, plating a runner and helping the Red Sox win a pivotal game 4

Game used hit balls are tough to gather, it takes a heads up MLB authenticator working closely with the batboys to gather and identify such items (thanks to @DETAuthentics, some of the best in the business, for this one!).  While the advent of authentication and the team stores have made these more available to collectors, only the truly dedicated and tireless collector can gather a collection focused on these.  As it is a hit by a Red Sox catcher, it fits in our collection.  Check out more David Ross game used gear in the CATCHERS section of the website
