    If you lived in the NYC area during his reign of error with the Mets, you'd know.

    Mets owner Steve Cohen revealed he owns the ball that Mookie Wilson hit through Bill Buckner’s legs in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series. Now that Cohen owns the team as well, he said he plans to move the ball into the Mets Museum at Citi Field.

    In 1992, actor Charlie Sheen purchased the ball for more than $93,000, per the AP, before selling it eight years later to Los Angeles songwriter Seth Swirsky for close to $64,000. In 2012, Swirsky sold the ball to a buyer who wished to be anonymous -- Cohen, as it turns out.

    Cohen told SNY that when he found out the ball was up for auction, his business associate Andy Cohen suggested it would cost between $100,000 and $150,000. Steve Cohen told him to purchase it, and when Andy Cohen did so for more than $410,000, his boss “was not happy” about the escalated price.

    “But I’m happy now,” Cohen added.

    Keith Olbermann tweeted that he owns the Buckner glove from that play.

    he volunteered to loan it to Cohen for display in the Mets museum at Citi Field.

    he also suggested that maybe the ball and glove should finally "touch" - since they never did in 1986 !
