Do you have any idea what the odds are against that sort of thing happening? It’s already around 1,000-to-1 odds if you’re looking to catch one foul ball. For two foul balls to essentially travel to the same place in the same at-bat, it’s likely the chances of that are astronomical.
Regardless of what the math comes out to be, that was one lucky fan, and it was nice of him to toss the second ball away to some other fans that were in attendance.
Have you ever caught a foul ball at an MLB game before? How about two, perhaps? No? DIdn’t think so.
