Imagine the thrill of attending your first baseball game, then throw on top of that catching a home run ball. Well, Tim Pinkard's first trip to see the Astros was even better than that, as he caught two home runs, both off the bat of Houston's Chris Carter.

The Extra Mustard Supercomputer has run the numbers and the chance of such a thing occurring are an astronomical bajillion to one (there is no supercomputer).

The team was so impressed by the mans luck that they even invited Pinkard to swing by batting practice the next day so that Carter could meet his newfound home run muse.
