Twins ball boy makes great diving catch to save young fan from getting beaned

May 11, 2016

The job of a ball boy is to fetch foul balls and give them to fans anxiously waiting to get a souvenir from the game. The job also requires you to protect those same fans from getting smoked by line drives. In that regard, this Minnesota Twins ball boy is the best in the business.

On Tuesday night, he saved a kid from getting drilled by a hot shot off the bat of Orioles outfielder Joey Rickard -- and he did so with a phenomenal diving catch over the wall. 

All the fan could do was smile in disbelief and awe. Not all heroes wear tights and capes.
