Drew Selz is a 16-year-old Waterford High School student and a rabid Brewers fan. When he's not busy beating pediatric cancer, he's snagging more foul balls than pretty much anyone you know. Selz had Ewing's sarcoma when he was eight and had to have his femur, hip and knee replaced, which means that he can't play competitive baseball.

That hasn't stopped him from climbing the leaderboard over at MyGameBalls.com where he's tied for 19th place (and in sole possession of fourth place among minors). During Saturday's game between the Brewers and Cubs, Selz was in his usual seat in Miller Park's Section 217, where he snagged foul balls from two consecutive batters bringing his total to three all day.
