Look at those Gold Balls!,ha. These standard-sized Rawlings baseballs will be featured in the 2011 Home Run Derby where both the American League and National League participants will get a chance to hit these gold balls once they are down to his final out in each round. According to MLB, these gold baseballs feature one leather panel that has been infused with 24-karat gold and carry an carry a MSRP of $149.99 per ball, not to mentioned it might be worth a bit more on the player who hits it into the stands.

The AL and NL participants include David Ortiz, Adrian Gonzalez, Jose Bautista, and Robinson Cano from the American League while Prince Fielder, Rickie Weeks, Matt Holiday, and Matt Kemp will represent the National League. The 2011 Home Run Derby does begin on Monday July 11 and televised on ESPN.

It would be interesting to see how people would react when the $150 gold ball comes contact into the stands.
