MIAMI (AP) — Marlins closer Brad Ziegler collects autographed baseballs as well as saves.

His latest acquisition in the former category is a ball signed by Shaquille O’Neal, who threw the ceremonial first pitch to Ziegler at the Braves-Marlins game Friday.

Ziegler likes to take part in such festivities.

“It’s in my contract here to catch all the big-time celebrities when they throw the first pitch,” he joked.
