Oakland Ball Boy Shows Some Serious Defensive Skills (Video)

Oakland Ballboy catch

If the Oakland Athletic’s ever find themselves a little thin at any position on the diamond, they don’t have to look to their farm teams. They don’t even have to look outside their ballpark. They can just pick up this ballboy holding things down along the right field line.

Christian Colon of the Royals tore a foul ball along the first base side that looked like it was going to clear any and all fielding attempts and find its way into the stands.  Thankfully, there was some serious defensive intervention from this anonymous A’s ballboy, who used springs for legs to get WAY up and make the impressive snag.

Here’s the clip:

At the very least I would hope that catch earns him the right to put his name on his jersey. Guys this good shouldn’t be anonymous.
