A fan caught not one, but two home run balls hit by Houston Astros players while sitting atop the Green Monster of Fenway Park.
To catch a home run at an MLB ballpark is a feat in and of itself. But to catch two home runs? That is impossible. Well, that became a reality on Tuesday, May 17.
During the second inning of the Houston Astros-Boston Red Sox game, a fan sitting in the seats located on the top of the Green Monster caught two homers hit by the Astros! The first was a solo homer by shortstop Jeremy Pena, with the second being a two-run blast by first baseman Yuli Gurriel.
Fan catches two Astros home runs in same inning while sitting on top of Green Monster
The first home run was caught off of a bounce, while the second was successfully caught with his left hand.
The second inning is one that Houston will remember for quite some time, as they scored nine runs on five homers. The Astros revealed that is the most home runs the team has hit in a single inning ever.
All of those runs were recorded at the expense of Red Sox pitcher Nathan Eovaldi.
This fan will share the tale of how they caught two home runs in the same inning, and understandably so.
