Ballboys who’ve made it onto the field at a Major League level without knowing how baseball works are our favorite thing.
Behold, a hero for a new generation. A Kansas City Royals ballboy fielded a fair ball, handing it to a kid in the stands and screwing up a live play. Now, most kids would learn a hard lesson about paying attention and get it right on the next play. Not this kid. The only lessons this kid learned are:
1. Failure is embarrassing
2. Effort leads to failure
… so he just lets the next ball — a foul ball, no less — roll right past him. Welcome to the new breed of Millennial Ballboys, ladies and gentlemen Fragile and bad at everything, but hilarious on the Internet.
