The ball that made Barry Bonds the home-run king ended up in the hands of a guy from Queens.
And he's a Mets fan, to boot.
QUEENS FAN IS BARRY LUCKY

Back in New York:
POLS GET BEST SEATS IN HOUSE

The Mets and the Yankees will make sure city officials have a special place to root for the home teams in the new ballparks expected to open in 2009.
The Mets' Citi Field and the new Yankee Stadium will both set aside a luxury box for their use, a Parks Department spokesman said yesterday.
The city has long had a luxury box in Shea Stadium. City officials don't have one at the current Yankee Stadium, where a lack of luxury boxes was a big reason the team wanted a new stadium.
Mets fan: When Barry is indicted this Fall, that ball won't be worth dip.
Pols: Shame on you for sitting in luxury boxes while most of your constituents can't afford the admission price.
