BOSTON (CBS) – The college student who caught Shane Victorino’s grand slam home run ball that helped put the Red Sox into the World Series is going up for auction.

Nick Wood was sitting in the Green Monster seats when he scooped up the ball Victorino had just hit.

Wood, a 23-year-old student at University of Rhode Island student from Westborough, Mass., tapped SCP Auctions to sell the ball.

“As much of a fan as I am, I’m not really a memorabilia collector. This auction will hopefully allow a collector or maybe even a museum to preserve and display the ball for years to come,” Wood said in a news release.

The auction runs November 20 through December 7 online at SCPAuctions.com.
