My brother was at the Cincinnati Reds’ game this afternoon, sitting a few rows up in the stands on the first base side. A ball was fouled off, and it bounced on one hop to a guy about five rows in front of him. On the very next pitch, the ball was fouled off again, and the same guy caught it.
OK somebody calculate the odds of this. Assume there are 250 pitches in a game, 5% of which result in balls going into the stands . . .
Seriously I bet this has never happened before.
BTW my brother a published a book this week, which those of you interested in Latin American history or drug policy or getting high would find very interesting.
