Some of us never come close to catching a foul ball while attending a baseball game. But a Seattle Mariners fan must have been carrying a horseshoe or four-leaf clover Monday night after catching foul balls on consecutive pitches.

In the bottom of the first inning of the Mariners’ 6–2 victory over the Kansas City Royals, Josh Rojas fouled a ball down the left line, which was caught by a Julio Rodriguez jersey-wearing, baseball gloveless fan, much to criticism on the ball. to the delight of the T-Mobile Park crowd.

But that fan wasn’t done showing off yet. On the next pitch, Rojas threw another ball in the same direction with the same result.

‘He has them both! He’s got them both!’ Mariners broadcaster Aaron Goldsmith exclaimed.

According to MLB Stats, there is a 0.0001% chance of catching two foul balls in a row. Of the 48,000 seats at the Mariners ballpark, that fan happened to be sitting in a very lucky seat.
