Conrad Gregor is a first baseman for the Quad City River Bandits in Davenport, Iowa, according to the team's Web site.

Gregor hit the ball over the right field wall at Modern Woodmen Park.

His dad, Marty Gregor, reached up to catch it and then started to wave his hands in excitement.

Gregor’s hit brought in three runs and helped win the game against the Cedar Rapids Kernels.

The Quad City Times reports that Gregor’s parents were in Davenport, visiting from Indiana, to watch their son play for the Memorial Day Weekend Series.

“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’’ Gregor told the newspaper.

Gregor was drafted out of Vanderbilt University last year by the Astros in the fourth round.
