Rich Davis: "Amber, my feeling from what I’ve heard, I don’t like how the Dodgers handled this... I feel like they strong armed you, I feel like they bamboozled you. There are details I want to hear from you as far as someone telling you they won’ authenticate the ball, is that true?"

Ambar Roman (Dodger Fan): “Yeah, that’s exactly what they told me. When they told me I don’t know if you realize that this is his (Ohtani’s) first home run ball for the Dodgers and it would really mean a lot to him if you bring it back and I told them that I didn’t want to give it back... that I wanted to keep it and if it was possible that he could sign it for me and that’s when they told me no, that if I was going to keep it he wouldn’t be willing to sign it for me.”
