CINCINNATI (AP) -- The college student who got national attention
for catching two home run balls is back in the spotlight at Great
American Ball Park.
The Cincinnati Reds made 20-year-old Caleb Lloyd an honorary
captain on Tuesday for the second game of their series against the
Atlanta Braves. He and coach Billy Hatcher took out the lineup
card, giving Lloyd a chance to tell his story to the umpiring crew.
The videoboard identified him as a "Professional Home Run Ball
Catcher."
Lloyd was in the left field stands on Monday night when Reds
pitcher Mike Leake and shortstop Zack Cozart hit back-to-back
homers that he caught. Lloyd, a junior at Thomas More College, gave
the first ball to Leake as a keepsake and got several autographed
items from the pitcher.
