If the New York Yankees fan who caught Derek Jeter’s home run for the shortstop’s 3,000th hit has to pay taxes for gifts he received for returning the ball, he will have help. Chicago-based MillerCoors — more specifically, Miller High Life — has offered to make the situation less taxing for Christian Lopez by writing a check to the IRS, if needed. “Miller High Life believes you should be rewarded for doing the right thing, not penalized,” Miller High Life brand manager Brendan Noonan said Wednesday. “We want to recognize Christian Lopez, and in turn everyone like him, for doing the common-sense thing and help him continue to live the High Life.”
† Topps announced it will be printing baseball cards of Lopez. It also has produced cards autographed by former President George W. Bush. It’s the first time a living president has made his signature available in a trading-card product.
† Congratulations to Northwestern women’s lacrosse coach Kelly Amonte Hiller and women’s soccer coach Stephanie Foster, who shouldn’t have trouble remembering the other’s youngest child’s birthday. Each coach gave birth Monday to her second daughter. Lew Hughes Hiller weighed 6 pounds 11 ounces. Etta Mae Foster weighed 8 pounds.
† Dept. of corrections (also known as hitting the wrong computer key): The date for the Champions Series tennis tour that will be coming to the United Center with Andre Agassi, Bjorn Borg, Jim Courier and John McEnroe is Oct. 20.
