For a split-second I thought it was maybe about a disgruntled Tokyo Giants fan who was angry about the Tigers whipping them.

There are plenty of people who would think of nothing but dollar signs after catching that ball. But more and more often, the people who catch these balls are giving them back to the players. For a true fan, meeting the player and shaking his hand (and getting a picture and an autographed item) is more than a fair trade. And good move by the Giants to change their minds and give the guy tickets to a World Series game.
