Orioles fan catches home run ball at three straight games

This is a story about Baltimore, but it’s pretty amazing, so I’m going to write about it anyhow. Above, please find SportsCenter video of 17-year old Orioles fan Tim Anderson. Who has now gotten his hands on home run balls at three consecutive Orioles Games. Which is fairly amazing.

The rising high school senior’s Twitter feed provides a handy play-by-play. (Via Ian, the source of everything.)

Of course, Baseball tonight suggested that maybe Anderson was wearing identical shorts during his three grabs, which he was quick to dispute.

@SBerthiaumeESPN Thanks for the shoutout on BBTN! Btw, they aren’t the same shorts! Mom is getting mad that america thinks her son is dirty!less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet ReplyTim Anderson

Here’s photographic proof. Anderson is scheduled to appear on SportsCenter on Friday to discuss his achievement.
