Being a ball boy for a Major League Baseball team is a pretty cool gig.

Not only do they get to watch the game for free (and some even get paid), but they get to be a part of the action and feel like they're actually in the game.

Give credit where its due, this kid went all-out to snag an Omar Infante foul ball. Despite a valiant effort, he didn't make the catch.

Close, but no cigar.

Tough day at the office -- and the kid didn't take it very well.
