SCP Auctions is proud to announce that Boston Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino’s grand slam home run ball from the 2013 American League Championship Series Game Six will be a part of its fall auction beginning Wednesday, Nov. 20 at SCPAuctions.com. Nick Wood, a 23-year old University of Rhode Island student and lifelong Red Sox fan from Westborough, Mass., has enlisted the help of SCP Auctions to sell the ball that propelled Boston to a 5-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers to clinch a spot in the World Series.
“We are honored that Nick has chosen SCP Auctions to conduct the auction of his Shane Victorino grand slam baseball,” said SCP Auctions Vice President Dan Imler. “We’re sure this will stand the test of time as one of the most iconic moments in Red Sox history and rank among the greatest post-season home runs in baseball history.”
“We were just jumping up and down and I heard this security guard screaming at us, saying, ‘Ball, ball, ball!’ And I looked down and it was literally rolling in between our feet. I grabbed it and after that it was just mayhem,” said Wood.
Bidding opens Wednesday, Nov. 20 and concludes on Saturday, Dec. 7. For more information on how to participate, visit www.scpauctions.com or call (949) 831-3700.
