Fans surround Kosuke Fukudome for autographs in Mesa
I ran this Japanese-language article through some online translators. The sense of it seems to be that after practice one day, Dome signed for more than 100 people, figuring them to all be fans -- but was distressed to learn that within a few hours, one of the signed balls wound up on eBay.
(I think I got it right, but if dragonsfanatic is around, please give a better translation.)
It didn't take too long to find the eBay listing for this item.
Greed knows no boundaries, apparently.
