A's fans Andrew Taylor, Robbie Wilson and Blake Clark caught a home run off the bat of Eric Sogard in Anaheim last week. With some good timing (and back-and-forth tweeting), Taylor and Wilson were able to meet up with Sogard before Thursday night's game in Oakland. Sogard signed their souvenir and stopped by for a quick chat before stepping in the batting cage.

"That made the whole trip," Taylor said. "Catching that Sogard home run was amazing."
