Astros fan catches Bryce Harper foul ball in cap

Astros fan Freddie Villarreal made quite the catch during Tuesday's game against the Nationals, using his cap to snare a Bryce Harper foul ball.

Freddie was at the game with his grandfather, Frank. His family, who was back home in Laredo, TX, saw his catch on TV.

"They just called me and said that it was an awesome catch," said the 12-year-old, who just returned from a PONY League tournament in Florida.

"I'm going to keep [the ball] in my room, and write where I caught it and how I caught it," he said.
