Indians season-ticket holder Greg Niel probably set a fan record when he caught four, yes, four foul balls at Sunday's Indians-Royals game in Cleveland.

Most baseball fans are thrilled if they’re lucky enough to catch one foul ball at a game. I’ve actually caught one, in Cleveland no less, and it’s exciting.
Your buddies high-five you, nearby fans look on jealously, admiring your new souvenir, and it’s generally a rare experience.
But Indians fan and season-ticket holder Greg Niel apparently shattered all fan-experience records on Sunday afternoon when he became the proud owner of four, yes, four new foul balls.
Well, three, actually. After the fourth, he simply tossed it to another section, bewildered by his good fortune.
Here's video of his fourth souvenir, which amazingly comes in just the fifth inning.
As if his day hadn’t gone well enough, the Tribe (51-44) eventually finished up a three-game sweep of Kansas City and heads into the All-Star break just a game and a half back of Detroit.
