A bit of history gone to the dogs

Jonathan Papelbon claims that his dog, Boss, chewed on the baseball that he used to record the final out of the 2007 World Series and that the ball is pretty much destroyed.

Doug Mientkiewicz has sued the dog.

How did Papelbon end up with the ball? I specifically remember Veritek sticking it in his pocket as he ran out to the mound.

I think Varitek gave it to Papelbon at some point duing the celebration, following the custom that the game ball "belongs" to the pitcher of record (in this case the guy who got the save). Now that I think about it I wonder if Jon Lester should have gotten the ball. Then again, my choice for series MVP was Papelbon, so I guess it was fitting, and even more fitting that his dog made a shambles of the whole thing.

How does that happen? It's just lying around the house next to the dogs dirty tennis ball and an old shoe?
