What is remarkable is that the same fan did it again in the ninth inning. MLB.com says the odds of that happening are one in 324,900.

On top of grabbing two foul balls and having everyone watching at home get to see his cool shirt, the fan got to see the Tigers take a combined no-hitter into the ninth inning and then win an extra-innings thriller against the White Sox.
