A ballboy guarding the left-field line at Target Field in Minnesota made a grab for the highlight reel on Thursday, and there’s a twist that makes the story even more fun.

It turns out that the young man who made the amazing snag on Alexei Ramirez’s foul line drive in the fourth inning is Paul Neshek, who is the brother of Oakland A’s relief pitcher Pat Neshek. Pat tweeted about the play in amazement on Thursday:

Pat Neshek was drafted by the Twins in 2002 and played for them from 2006-2010. He has spent the past two seasons with the A’s, but apparently his brother is still in Minnesota.

Neshek has a 2.90 ERA in 198.2 career innings. The baseball skills seem to run in the family.
