What would you do with A-Rod's 600th home run?

Colin Curtis found the ball that went for his first major league home run in his glove after the game Wednesday. He asked what the fan who caught the ball requested and it was an Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter autograph. Certainly an easy task to appease the fan.
The price will be much steeper when Rodriguez hits his 600th career home run.

Local fans might get the opportunity to catch the milestone baseball with the Yankees hosting the Royals this weekend before playing in Cleveland on Monday.

If you were the lucky fan to catch that ball, what would you do? Would you keep it? Would you throw it back? Would you give it to Rodriguez for nothing? Request a date with Cameron Diaz? Ask for an A-Rod-Jeter boxing match? What would you request in return to give Rodriguez the ball? Would you sell it?

Rodriguez, who turns 35 on Tuesday, hit No. 599 Wednesday. When A-Rod was approaching 500 home runs three years ago, it took him 29 at-bats to notch No. 500. A-Rod would become the seventh player in major league baseball history to reach 600 home runs, Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, Willie Mays, Ken Griffey Jr. and Sammy Sosa have done it.
