Astros fan attending his first game catches 2 HR balls, both hit by Chris Carter

Wednesday August 13th, 2014

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.
