Perfect-game memento available
SAN FRANCISCO — If you’re looking for a memento of Matt Cain’s perfect game, you might consider purchasing one of the 2,012 special baseballs being produced by Rawlings and officially licensed by Major League Baseball.
Each ball is decorated with a photo of Cain celebrating with teammates after the game’s final out and information about the game. A display case and a key chain from this year’s All-Star Game also are provided.
The cost for each ball is $39.98. Proceeds will benefit the Snow Scientific Research Foundation, which helps fund research for a terminal form of children’s diabetes. The Foundation is named for former Giants first baseman J.T. Snow and his late father, Jack.
Fans can order the baseballs by calling 1-800-345-2868 or visiting http://www.nikcosports.com. Each baseball comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
