CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

One lucky day for a Indians season ticket holder at Progressive Field.

For the first time in his life, Greg Van Niel caught a foul ball, but it gets better. He went on to grab three more.

Van Niel was sitting in the lower deck, third base line. This isn't his usual section. He said he changed sections because he brought a lot of family members with him.

Van Niel actually tossed the last one back onto the field. He said he actually picked that one up after someone else missed it.

The chances of catching four foul balls in one game is about one in a trillion. He beat the odds and the Tribe beat the Royals 6-4.
