Hitting your first home run of the season is always a big moment for any player, but having your dad catch the ball is even more special.
Houston Astros prospect Conrad Gregor hit a three-run homer for his first home run of the year for the Quad Cities River Bandits, and his dad made an impressive catch after it left the park.
Gregor talked about the home run with Steve Batterson of the Quad City Times:
That was my dad. ... He may have to watch every game from out there. It's a little unbelievable, but I'm glad my parents were here to see it and when I got back to the dugout, I heard he made a pretty good catch.
The 22-year-old will probably hit plenty more home runs over his career, but this will be one of the more memorable ones.
