Papelbon’s Dog Eats World Series Ball

Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon was given the ball from game 4 after he threw the winning pitch but the ball was missing for a while, bringing back memories of the ’04 ball fiasco. Now comes word that Papelbon’s best friend shredded the ball. “He plays with baseballs like they are his toys, he jumped up one day on the counter and snatched it. He likes rawhide. He tore that thing to pieces.”
