Cheers To This Oakland Fan For Catching Two Foul Balls On Consecutive Pitches

athletics fan two foul balls

Other than the one dude who doesn’t have syphilis, you’d have to think this guy is the luckiest man in Oakland.

The odds of catching one foul ball at a baseball game are 1:580. I once caught two foul balls at a Brewers game thanks to the fact that my pops bought us $20 seats behind the tarp and there were maybe 5,000 other people in attendance. Still, the odds of that happening to you are 1:336,400.

As for the odds of catching two foul balls on consecutive pitches? Well, I sure as shit am not doing that kind of math on a Monday morning, but it’s supposedly somewhere in the “hundreds of millions if not billions.” Basically, you’d have a better chance of getting humped by Kate Upton and Mother Teresa’s corpse in the same day than catching two consecutive foul balls.

Anyway, that actually happened to some dude at the A’s-Royals game yesterday. Not the corpse humping but the two foul balls thing:

Truly amazing, especially when you throw in the fact that he didn’t have a glove like that fucking nerd behind him. He now has two more foul balls than sleeves. Great work.

Let’s be honest. For 99.9999 percent of the people in this country, yesterday’s A’s-Royals game was about as meaningless of a baseball game as there will ever be. Except for that guy, of course…
