I thought this was a neat story.

SEATTLE -- Astros prospect Conrad Gregor and his father, Marty, have shared plenty of games of catch over the years, but what happened Saturday night in Davenport, Iowa, tops everything.

 

Gregor hit a three-run home run in the sixth inning for Class A Quad Cities -- his first homer of the season -- and, amazingly, his father caught the ball on the fly while standing beyond the right-center-field fence in a moment neither will ever forget.

 

"I didn't know he was going to be out there," Conrad said. "I didn't know at the time that it happened, but after I saw him a lot of people were cheering. I spotted my dad and it was a pretty cool moment. Then I saw it on video after and I just started laughing, and that was really cool that he caught it. Didn't need a glove. Pretty good hands from the old man."
