John Lackey Gives Pat Neshek an Incredible Gift

Wow.

Getting started on a new team can be tough. New teammates, new stadium, new number. But in the time-honored tradition of paying new teammates to change their number so you can have your old one, John Lackey has retained his No. 41 with the Cardinals. In thanks for switching his number, Lackey got Pat Neshek an amazing gift: a baseball signed by Babe Ruth.

It seems unlikely that this piece of memorabilia will be up for auction anytime soon.
