Fugitive Baseballs and Abandoned Property: Who Owns the Home Run Ball?

Abstract:     
This article began as a modest attempt to answer the question by what legal theory does Joe Figone claim ownership and title to Barry Bonds 500th home run baseball, and by what theory might someone claim ownership of any baseball.

The investigation and analysis of these questions provides a better understanding of the nature of property in law, and at the same time allows us to see how, in one more way, baseball mirrors our legal system and helps us understand the rule of law.
