Has Major League Baseball started awarding Gold Gloves to ballboys and ballgirls without telling anyone?
We only ask because one Oakland Athletics ballboy risked his body to snag a foul ball Monday at O.co Coliseum. Judging from his effort, we assume there’s a trophy, or perhaps a big-league tryout, at stake.
Why else would he make such a valiant effort?
Or maybe the ballboy is afraid of A’s reliever Chris Smith and his death stare.
Yes. That’s probably it.
