You Lucky Bastard

Other than having to attend Pirates games, this guy has all the luck.

In the 30 or so years Doug Rohrkaste has attended Pirates games, he never once snagged a foul ball as a souvenir.

"Never even came close," he said.

But, in an extraordinary sequence June 22, Rohrkaste grabbed a souvenir off the bat of Jason Bay, then snared two more balls on consecutive pitches to Jack Wilson an inning later. That trifecta occurred within about 15 minutes, according to the PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE.

I touched a foul ball two weeks ago, but it was already in the clutches of a guy two rows back. Closest I've come.
