If you follow baseball at all, you might have heard the story about Brandon Moss' 100th career home run. It's one of the funnier stories to come out of the game so far this season.

Normally, when a major milestone is reached in baseball, it's not uncommon to trade for the priceless piece of memorabilia. For example, Barry Bonds' record-breaking home run ball sold for $450,000 at auction. While that's an extreme example, it's not uncommon for a player to give an autograph or a jersey for the sentimental ball, bat, whatever the case may be.

Moss' teammates in the Cleveland Indians bullpen decided to apply this principal to his 100th home run ball ... only they went about it in an unconventional way. They left a ransom note in his locker after the game demanding the latest Apple products including a few iPhone 6s, new MacBook Airs, and a round of Apple Watches.

So if Moss ever wanted to see his noteworthy ball again, he needed to pay up, big time.

Moss eventually got his ball back, but he's not the one who paid the ransom. You won't believe who did.
