VIDEO: Tribe fan snags FOUR foul balls

(Cleveland) - A lucky fan at Sunday's game between the Tribe and Royals caught four foul balls, a once-in-several-lifetimes achievement.

Season ticket Greg Van Niel, a season-ticket holder Cleveland Heights, hauled in four souvenir balls during the Indians' 6-4 win over the Kansas City Royals.

Van Niel said he wasn't sitting in his usual seats, but he was able to catch three balls and that one was a "pick-up" he tossed to another fan.

Van Niel said gave the three other balls to kids that were part of his group. He said he had never caught a foul ball before his amazing one-day haul.

There were 15,431 other fans at the Indians' final game before the all-star break, but it's safe to bet none had a day quite like Van Niel.

Van Niel was on Monday morning with Wills and Snyder to talk about his lucky day!
