A's fan gets second chance at foul ball

A baseball-gloved Oakland A's fan was bummed out when a foul ball landed right next to him and he still missed catching the souvenir because he was too busy yapping on his cell phone. But as luck— and the empty seats at The Coliseum— would have it, the very next pitch went foul in the exact spot and this time he caught it— while still on the phone.

Both balls were hit in the same spot as the lone fan stood in the nearly empty left field seats donning his glove and a T-shirt which read "Original Oakland A's Fan."

What are the chances?

The guy was pretty excited about catching the ball and was probably still on his cell phone telling his pals about his near miss and catch all the way home.
