The chances of a foul ball being hit to you at a baseball game are pretty small. The chances you actually catch that ball? Even smaller. The chances you catch the ball while filming the whole thing on a GoPro camera? Well, that’s just impossible.
But apparently Micah Graves did the impossible this weekend.
The 20-year-old fan attended a Biloxi Shuckers game Saturday night — the first home game of the Milwaukee Brewers’ Double-A affiliate after starting the season on a 55-game road trip — and brought along his GoPro to document the big night.
Graves was having himself a normal night, until this happened.
Seriously, what are the odds?
Our natural instincts tell us this probably is staged, or fake, but the evidence suggests Graves actually made the incredible catch. [tweet https://twitter.com/MicahGravess/status/607352241108996096 align=’center’] [tweet https://twitter.com/devinlorraine/status/607954482064965633 align=’center’]
“This was my first ever ball caught at a professional baseball game, and because it was the first home game at MGM Park, I am very pleased to be a part of all the excitement,” Graves told reporters after the game, via WLOX.com.
The Shuckers also went on to top the Mobile BayBears 5-4 in 14 innings. Not a bad first night at the ballpark.
