Game Ball, Hamels' Hat, Lineup Card from Combined No-Hitter Headed to the Hall of Fame
The Phillies’ combined no-hitter from this past weekend, the only thing cool or interesting or smile-inducing about this season, will result in some memorabilia being sent Cooperstown’s way. According to Todd Zolecki, the Hall of Fame will receive and display Cole Hamels’ cap from the game, a game ball, and Ryne Sandberg’s signed lineup card. Additionally, as a sign of “this season doesn’t matter to either of us, so just have it,” the Braves have said they’ll dig up the rubber from the pitcher’s mound after the season is over and send it to the Phils. Maybe instead of displaying it they can just install it at CBP and hope that mojo carries over.
