CARMEL, Ind. - It was a once in a lifetime moment for a Carmel dad and his son as the stars aligned for the perfect catch.
Houston Astros prospect Conrad Gregor, of Carmel, stepped up to the plate for the Quad Cities River Bandits over Memorial Day weekend.
Gregor hit his first professional home run and a lucky fan caught the ball. But it was no ordinary fan -- it was his own dad, Marty Gregor.
"You know they just threw one pitch...all the sudden you hear the crack of the bat and you knew right away it was going to be hit hard and uh, it had a great chance of going out and as soon as I saw the elevation I knew it was going out. And then the next thing I know it's coming towards me, and I’m thinking oh my goodness I need to try and catch this baseball," Marty Gregor said.
Marty said he still has the baseball. Conrad’s parents said they made the five-hour drive from Carmel to attend Saturday’s game in Davenport, Iowa.
