BOSTON (CBS) – At the WBZ Water Cooler this week: Yankees fan Christian Lopez gave Derek Jeter his home run ball back, that he ripped into the left field seats for his 3,000th hit.

So WBZ NewsRadio’s Rod Fritz was talking ‘Christian Lopez’ at the WBZ Water Cooler.

The New York Times calculated Lopez’s tax bill — for the Jeter autographed bats, balls and jerseys, four front-row seats on Sunday and four Champions Suite tickets for the remainder of the season — at around $14,000.

“Worse comes to worse, I’ll have to pay the taxes,” Lopez told the New York Daily News. “I’m not going to return the seats. I have a lot of family and friends who will help me out if need be.”
