CINCINNATI — 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.
