The Athletics’ ball boy, patrolling the left field line at the O.co Coliseum, made what was arguably the play of the day on Saturday when the A’s hosted the Rays. In the top of the second inning, the Athletics had runners on first and second with one out for Marcus Semien. Semien drilled a 2-0 Erasmo Ramirez fastball down the left field line. The ball boy, with a running start, dove for the ball as it dared to skip towards the Athletics’ relievers in front of the stands and successfully snagged the ball.

He got a round of applause from the fans in Oakland and gave the ball away, but the best part was how casually he got dap from the relievers. Act like you’ve been there before, they say.
