Apple may be sending the wrong message here: holding a baseball ransom does pay off.

You may recall that last week the Indians bullpen went public with its demands if it was going to return Brandon Moss’ home run ball. It was the 100th home run of his career (hit into the Indians bullpen at Kauffman Stadium), which is kind of a big deal.

Here’s the list:

Kind of heavy on the Apple products, no? Fortunately for Moss, Apple CEO Tim Cook stepped to the plate (stupid joke, I know). At Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco on Monday, Cook announced he would pay off the debt.

Why, if I didn’t know better I’d say this is some sort free commercial for Apple.
