Last Tuesday, the Cleveland Indians’ Brandon Moss hit his 100th career home run.
The 100th home run ball itself would have surely been a nice keepsake for Moss but unfortunately for Moss, the team’s pitchers in the bullpen snagged the ball and, well, they weren’t prepared to give it to Moss unless certain Apple-based demands were met.

Now, a week later, Apple CEO Tim Cook has heard the bullpen’s conditions and has agreed to supply the Indians’ pen with their desired Apple products.

Not a bad deal for everyone involved. Apple is getting a little more brand recognition, the Indians bullpen will receive some pretty nice Apple swag and poor Brandon Moss will finally unite with his long-last milestone home run ball.
