BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - "The first thing I did was turn to my girlfriend and ask if the red light was blinking on the camera," said 20-year-old Micah Graves, as he recalled his incredible bare handed catch of a line drive foul ball during opening night for the Biloxi Shuckers. 

Indeed the red light was blinking, and the GoPro camera strapped to his head captured the video that's now been shared worldwide with more than one million hits on line. 

"It was just crazy," Graves recalled as he shared his memories of "the catch." He wore the camera with the intention of sharing some documentary type video of the historic opening night at MGM Park. Instead, he snagged a line drive foul ball and the video that's propelled him into his 15 minutes of fame. 

And it's not just the video getting noticed. Attending his next Shuckers game, Graves said he was recognized by several fans. They said, "Hey, you're the dude with the camera that made that catch."
