BALTIMORE (WMAR) - It's rare when an Orioles player and fan make history in the same night, but Friday night's game against the Royals proved to be one for the record books.
Manny Machado became the youngest team player to ever have a multiple home run game, and a young fan may have also made history as the first fan to catch two home run balls by the same player in the same game.
"Right when it went off the bat I thought it was coming my way, but it curved a little bit and I was like oh gosh I'm not going to get it," said 15-year-old Adam Corder. "Then it just landed second to the left and I just ran down and got it," he said.
Moments later, another fan opened his wallet - offering the 15-year-old two-thousand dollars for the home run ball, but Corder refused.
"There's always that second thought that you have when money's involved but I thought it was too special and Manny had to have it," said Corder.
One inning later, the teenager strikes again with lady luck when a second home run ball lands right in front of him.
The second home run ball is now autographed and sitting in Corder's Millersville home.
The teen's older brother Gabe, his girlfriend, and her little brother all got signed hats and balls.
The Orioles have invited all four of them back to Camden Yards next week for a game against the Red Sox.
