DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - A 22-year-old Houston Astros prospect’s first home run of the season was caught by a familiar fan: his father.

Quad Cities first baseman Conrad Gregor launched a go-ahead, three-run shot in the sixth inning of the Class-A River Bandits’ 5-2 win over the Cedar Rapids Kernels at Modern Woodmen Park in Davenport, Iowa, on Saturday night. A fan beyond the fence in right-center field caught the ball and proudly waved his arms. Turns out it was Gregor’s father, Marty.

The Quad City Times reported that Gregor’s parents made the five-hour drive from Carmel, Indiana, to attend the River Bandits’ weekend series.

“When I got back to the dugout,” Gregor said, “I heard he made a pretty good catch.”
