Young fan goes after foul ball in stands, somehow comes back with two?!

June 1st, 2022

What’s better than coming away from a Major League game with one foul ball? Leaving with two, of course.

But snagging two after one swing of the bat? That’s almost unheard of -- and what made what happened Tuesday night at Citizens Bank Park all the more remarkable.

In the sixth inning of the Giants-Phillies game, San Francisco’s Donovan Walton hit a foul ball down the left-field line. One young fan, donning a Bryce Harper jersey, sprinted after it, fading out of the sight of the TV camera, if only for a moment. When he re-emerged, not only did he have his prize, but a bonus ball, as well.

How that other ball ended up there? Perhaps we’ll never know. What’s for certain, though, is that this Phillies fan came away twice as happy.
