Nice luck. (http://www.chron.com/cs/CDA/ssistory.mpl/sports/3389349) Sheesh. I'm 39 and still haven't caught so much as a foul ball.

I went to a Yankee game this summer and the same guy dropped three home run balls in one game.

I remember seeing that on ESPN. I couldn't stop laughing when I seen that.

Bernie Williams is old and doesn't have the range he used too, I don't think you should bring up his poor fielding, we might have to play them next round!

I've caught 2 BP home run balls, including one in old Milwaukee County Stadium when I was in high school, but never one in an actual game.

Although, this year I did snare a Chevy Pride t-shirt at the game where Dye hit the walk-off homer against the Angels. That shirt must be lucky since I wore it to game 1 on Tuesday.

LOL Nicely played.

The odds of this guy in Houston catching two homers are ridiculous. Without knowing the circumstances I just would've assuming he was just kicking ass, pushing people out of the way for these balls.

I have caught 6 this year (2 bp-- all without a glove!!)-- my kid's think I have a magnet to get them!
But the topper was a game 1 grab of Paulie's long foul ball and being featured on ESPN-- my Ferris Bueller moment.

I have it to attach but it says the file is too large.

You'll be talking about that one for...well your entire lifetime. I've gotten plenty during batting practice but never even close during a game...
