SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- His face was bloody and his clothes torn -- the cost of being the fan who ended up with Barry Bonds' record-breaking home run ball last night.
Twenty-two-year-old New Yorker Matt Murphy was quickly surrounded by San Francisco police who pulled him from the crowd in the stands and quickly led him through a tunnel and into a secure room.
Officials say Murphy and a friend were only in town for a day, en route to Australia, and had bought tickets just before the game. Murphy showed up at the game sporting a Mets cap. He declined to talk to reporters.
Baseball memorabilia experts have pegged the ball's value at upwards of a-half million dollars.
Bonds says he has no intention of trying to get the prized ball back.
