You might remember the guy who snagged a home run ball to save the life of a bikini sunbather.
Well, some kid at yesterday’s Texas Rangers-Red Sox game one-upped that accomplishment by snagging two foul balls in ONE AT-BAT! 3 pitches apart.
The hitter? God’s child – Josh Hamilton.
Of course the Rangers broadcast team made CJ the Fan of the Game and went in for an interview with the new legend.

Premise of Video: CJ is minding his business in front of Red Sox fans on a lazy Arlington Sunday afternoon when a foul ball comes his way. Josh Hamilton is at-bat. Just a routine foul ball comes flying into CJ’s area. He goes up and robs Red Sox fan of the souvenir. 3 pitches later. It happens again.
Odds of that happening: worse than hitting for the cycle in both games of a doubleheader.
Climax of Video: The sideline reporter guy congratulating him on robbing the Sox fans. Nice snub, reporter boy.
Conclusion: CJ will now enjoy an entire week of being praised by the blogosphere.
