DULUTH, Minn. (AP) - A Duluth priest says Pope Francis signed a baseball for him during a recent trip to Rome.

The Rev. Richard Kunst tells WDIO-TV ( ) that he met with the pope last week, taking along a baseball for Francis to sign. Kunst says the meeting lasted a minute and that he was on “cloud nine.”

Kunst says he asked the pope to sign a baseball because of the “rarity and uncommon nature of it,” and that it could speak to people who aren’t interested in matters of faith. The baseball that Kunst says the pope autographed has “Francis” scrawled on it.
