Matt Murphy — the Mets-jersey-wearing kid from Queens who wound up with Barry Bonds’ home run record-setting ball in San Diego Aug. 7 — announced today that he will auction off the prized ball.

“Two weeks ago today history was made,” Murphy said at a press conference this afternoon in San Francisco. “I was privileged enough to be in house.
