Brothers Manuel and Richard Ramos were watching Game 6 of the 2021 World Series from their apartment outside Minute Maid Park in Houston when a valuable memento from the classic game practically rolled right to them.

Atlanta’s Jorge Soler had just blasted a mammoth three-run home run that sailed over the left field wall and clear out of ballpark. The ball landed on top of an awning outside the stadium and rolled to a stop on the sidewalk just inside a fence separating the park from the surrounding city.

The ball sat there for eight minutes before the Ramos brothers raced down six flights of stairs and collected it. They have consigned the ball to SCP Auctions, where it is being offered along with two other memorable home run balls from the Braves’ championship-clinching Game 6 victory.

Behind home runs from Soler, Dansby Swanson and Freddie Freeman, the Braves beat the Astros 7-0 in Game 6 to win the 2021 World Series. The three home run balls are being offered in SCP’s upcoming Winter Premier Auction, which opens Jan. 19 and runs through Feb. 5.

Soler’s home run traveled more than 446 feet (the maximum measurable distance at Minute Maid Park) to spark the outfielder/DH to the World Series MVP award. The historic blast was named the 2021 MLB Legendary Moment.

Swanson’s 411-foot, two-run home run gave the Braves a 5-0 lead and Freeman’s seventh-inning home, a 416-foot shot, gave them their final margin of victory.

Young cousins Hudson Pace and Steven Edwards wound up with Freeman’s home run ball after it bounced off a railing and back into the field of play. The young fans asked Astros outfielder Jose Siri to toss them the ball.

SCP estimates the three home run balls could combine to fetch six figures in its Winter auction.
