It's been said the odds of catching a foul ball or home run at professional baseball game are 776 to 1, however we couldn't find odds on snatching TWO of these souvenirs.
Obviously Caleb Lloyd is among the luckiest fans in the Majors, as he did just that during Tuesday night's Reds game, and get this, it was on consecutive homers from his favorite team.
The 20-year-old was playing video games when his buddy dragged him to the game. Lloyd, sitting in the front row of the left field bleachers, ended up snagging big flies from pitcher Mike Leake and Zack Cozart in the fourth inning of the Cincinnati's game with the Atlanta Braves.
“Right now, I can’t believe that it’s happening. It’s amazing,” he told a group of sports writers.
Despite his fan heroics, Lloyd ended up leaving Great American Ballpark with amazing memories, and without either of the keepsake balls.
“I gave the Cozart one to my buddy, whose uncle actually got us the ticket,” Lloyd told the Cincinnati Enquirer. “I gave him the ball because he was kind of one of the reasons I was here. The Leake ball, I gave it back because I know it’s Leake’s first ever major league home run. I just want to meet him and shake his hand.”
Lloyd is a junior at Thomas More College in Crestview Hills, Kentucky, where he is a member of the Saints' soccer team. By the way, that's the same school 1990's Braves slugger David Justice attended.
