You may be tempted to click off this post without reading all the way to the end, but if you do, you'll miss out on a very generous act by a fellow blogger.
Ryan over at The Great Orioles Autograph Project was witness to history when he was at the May 8th game between the Orioles and Rangers.
He saw Josh Hamilton hit a two run homer in the 1st inning off Jake Arrieta.
He saw Josh Hamilton hit a two run homer in the 3rd inning off Jake Arrieta.
He saw Josh Hamilton hit a two run homer in the 7th inning off Zach Phillips.
He saw Josh Hamilton hit a two run homer in the 8th inning off Darren O'Day.
He and his wife witnessed an event more rare than a perfect game. I sent him an email after he posted about the 4 homer game and asked him if he wasn't a ticket stub collector, I would love to have one of the tickets. Well, it just so happens that Ryan does collect his stubs, but his wife was more than happy to donate her ticket to me. This generosity will soon be rewarded when I find something appropriate to send his/her way.
I generally throw my ticket stubs in a box, but I'll treat this one a lot better.
Thank you Ryan and Mrs. Ryan! I truly appreciate you sending this to me!!
