We don't know which is the more impressive aspect of this feat: the fact that Goldschmidt essentially hit the home runs in the exact same location or the fact that this particular man happened to be in the right place at the right time TWO times in the same game.

This quirky circumstance comes two games after a Pirates fan in a bright yellow throwback jersey speared a Welington Castillo homer with his bare hand while holding his young child in the other arm.

Chase Field was the place to be this weekend if you were a home run-seeking fan, that's for sure.
