Lucky Reds fan catches back-to-back homers

The Reds hit back-to-back home runs on May 21, 2012, and fan Caleb Lloyd caught both of them at Great American Ball Park. (MLB)

Here's the thing about back-to-back home runs: it's all about point of view.

If you're one of the hitters, awesome.

If you're the pitcher, eh, not so good.

And if you're Caleb Lloyd, who until Monday night was just some dude sitting in the outfield seats at Great American Ballpark, you're the luckiest fella in town.

Not only did Mike Leake and Zack Cozart hit back-to-back bams in the fourth inning for the Cincinnati Reds, this guy caught them both.

Lloyd tells his story in the video embedded above.
