Cop with fumble fingers drops two home run balls from same batter in same game

Bucky Goodale (above) is a Mooresville police officer and has been for seven years. He's also a big Atlanta Braves fan, a former outfielder for Pfeiffer and a man whose family was so deeply immersed in baseball that he was named for former New York Yankee Bucky Dent.

On Aug.17th, he had a chance to catch two Jason Heyward home run balls in Atlanta -- in the very same game! -- and dropped both, breaking two ribs in the process. Luckily, he has a sense of humor about it all. Watch the video above and/or read this column for more details. This YouTube video also shows some of the original fumbles courtesy of Fox Sports South.

Same thing he did while playing at Pfeifer.

Learn to spell Pfeiffer. Obviously not a graduate.
