ONE FOR THE THUMB!:

Fan grabs 4 foul balls at Indians game (TOM WITHERS, 7/14/13, The Associated Press)

Greg Van Niel, a season-ticket holder who wasn't sitting in his usual seat, grabbed the four souvenirs during the Indians' 6-4 win. 

"Three of them were catches and one was a ball I picked up off the ground," Van Niel told the team. "The third one I think was the hardest one - I think I ended up sprawled across a few rows, and I got some cheese on myself. But the other ones were just a matter of being in the right place at the right time." 

 There were 15,431 other fans at the Indians' final game before the All-Star break, but it's safe to bet none had a day quite like Van Niel.
