Matt Murphy

Murphy won the lottery by catching Barry Bonds’ record-breaking homer last night.

The 22-year-old Mets fan from Queens beat out the ballhawks to catch number 756. The ball from the record-breaking hit will be worth anywhere from $500,000 to $700,000. That’ll buy a lot of beer and peanuts - but what will the taxes look like?
