Reds Fan Catches Two Home Run Balls Back-to-Back

Caleb Lloyd, a 20-year-old junior at Thomas More College, was sitting in left field with a friend when Mike Leake's first career home run came right at him. He caught it barehanded.

Then, Zack Cozart homered to the same spot three pitches later, The ball caromed right to Lloyd, who couldn't believe his luck. He gave one ball to the friend who brought him to the game and the other to Leake as a keepsake. The Reds beat the Atlanta Braves 4-1.
