Cleveland Indians Fan Catches Four Foul Balls in One Game


Every baseball fan goes to a Major League Baseball game hoping to have that moment when a foul ball is coming their way. If you are lucky, you will reach out your glove or bare hands and pull in the ball to take home a souvenir. For those who are really lucky, like Cleveland Indians season ticket holder Greg Van Niel, you will catch more than one.

During the team’s 6-4 win over the Kansas City Royals, Van Niel reeled in an impressive four foul balls in the same game.

The Cleveland Indians shared a photo of Van Niel proudly showing off a few of the baseballs that he reeled in.

Surprisingly, Van Niel had never caught a foul ball in any of the games he had previously attended, but he made up for it on Sunday.

As far as fan achievements go, Van Niel ranks among the best.
