Good morning, I'm David Greene.

In baseball yesterday, Cleveland beat Kansas City six-to-four. So the Indians had a good day, but not as good a day as one of their fans, Greg Van Niel. Get this: He caught not one, not two, not three, but four foul balls during the game. The season ticket-holder has been attending games since the '70s, never caught a foul before. What changed? Well, for one thing, Van Niel did not sit in his usual seat.

He told ESPN, We were one section over - happened to be the lucky section.
