Eastern Iowa Man Catches Khris Davis’ First Homerun With Rangers
Catching a homerun ball at a Major League Baseball game is a big deal, being there aren't a whole lot of people who have, compared to the amount of people who have attended games. Catching a player's first ball with a new team is an even bigger deal.
Peter Matos was on vacation in Denver, and planned to go to a ballgame.
The game was between the Texas Rangers and the Colorado Rockies.
When it came down to the eighth inning, the score was 1-2, and Khris Davis was up to the plate.
On a one ball, two strike count, Davis slammed one into the right field stands for a homerun, tying up the game.
As the ball flew into the stand, Bettendorf native Peter Matos caught the ball, since he had luckily brought his glove along with him.
It was Davis' first homerun with the Rangers, who he's been playing for since February.
