Cleveland Indians fan catches two Yan Gomes home run balls in one game; Gomes signs them
Big Tribe fan Jacob McMichael had great seats for the Tribe’s narrow Tuesday loss to the Mariners: first row in the Bleachers.
If only he knew.
Yan Gomes hit a homer to the Bleachers in the second to make it 1-1.
Jacob snagged it.
After the Mariners carried a 3-1 lead into the ninth, the Tribe mounted a rally – which began with Gomes’ second homer of the night:

The next day, Jacob tweeted this info to us:

Pretty cool thing, so heck yeah we helped! Front offce staffer Brent Overholt met Jacob in Streetsboro on Thursday morning. Brent delivered the baseballs to the Tribe’s PR crew, and Gomes was happy to sign both – and took a picture, too.
We’ll get the autographed baseballs back to Jacob soon!
Congrats, Jacob: Thanks for being a passionate Tribe fan, and congrats on your upcoming wedding!
