Pro baseball player’s dad catches son’s first home run

DAVENPORT, Iowa — A 22-year-old Houston Astros prospect’s first home run of the season was caught by his father, according to multiple media reports.

Conrad Gregor hit a three-run home run in the sixth inning of the Class-A River Bandits’ 5-2 win over the Cedar Rapids Kernels at Modern Woodmen Park in Davenport, Iowa, on Saturday.

Gregor’s dad, Marty, was standing beyond the fence in right-center field and caught the home run ball. He then proudly waived his arms.

Gregor’s parents drove five-hours to Carmel, Indiana, to attend the weekend series, the Quad City Times reported
