How’s this for a memory?

Conrad Gregor, a prospect for the Houston Astros, is up at bat with two men on base.

He swings…

And knocks it out of the ballpark and into the stands where his dad catches it!

What are the odds of that?

It was the first home run of the season for Gregor, playing for the Quad Cities River Bandits.

The whole catch connection was a complete surprise to Conrad Gregor, and found out about it later.

“I didn’t know he was going to be out there,” Gregor later told MLB.com. “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.”

The homer helped the Low A Quad Cities River Bandits to a victory over the Cedar Rapids Kernels in Davenport, Iowa.

What a great dad Marty Gregor is… He drove nearly five hours from their home in Carmel, Ind., to attend the game and saw his son’s first home run of the season.

Conrad Gregor was a fourth round pick in 2013 out of Vanderbilt.

No matter how big Conrad makes it, this is one memory both father and son won’t ever forget.
