It could be the greatest trade ever made by a baseball fan.
Joe Reis traded two tickets along the third-base line to Game 6 of the 1991 World Series for four bleacher seats so his family could join him. It turned out to be a life changing decision. Reis ended up being part of Minnesota Twins lore.
That ticket exchange led to Reis sitting in the left centerfield stands on Oct. 26, 1991, at the Metrodome with his wife and two daughters -- 20 years ago Wednesday. He ended up catching Kirby Puckett's game winning home run in the bottom of the 11th inning and later became friends with the baseball legend.
FOX 9 News caught up with the man behind the Twins historic home run catch who says despite two decades passing, it's still fresh in his head.
"It seems like yesterday, the memory is so vivid of that whole experience," Reis told the TV station. "I'll never forget the feeling, pulling it in," Reis said. "Opening that glove and -- holy cow, my heart started beating."
While most fans would try to cash in on this magical piece of baseball memorabilia, Reis says he never considered doing anything with the ball other than give it back to Puckett.
"To me, he hit that ball. That was his. I never thought anything other than that, 'We have to give this to him,'" Reis said.
Kirby got his ball back, and all Reis wanted was this photo with Puckett and his family.
It's a mystery as to where the ball from the most famous home run in Twins history is today. Nobody is sure. Reis ended up becoming friends with Puckett. The two played a couple rounds of golf over the years and Reis was invited to the Twins legend's 2001 Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
Puckett died five and a half years ago after suffering a stroke at the young age of 45. The Twins have taken the seat Reis sat in at the Metrodome before catching the homer; it sits in the archive room at Target Field.
At the time his career ended, Puckett's .318 lifetime batting average was the highest in the American League since Yankees legend Joe DiMaggio.
Here is Reis 20 years later in his office.
