The Kansas City Royals slipped an extra fielder onto the diamond on Sunday versus the New York Yankees when their ballboy accidentally fielded a ball that was fair and in play during KC's 2-1 win.

After fielding the ball off the bat of Brian Roberts, the ballboy was a nice dude and gave it to a fanonly problem was he didn't realize the ball was fair. It was after he handed the ball into the stands that Royals' outfielder Norichika Aoki notified the youngster of his blunder.

The video is courtesy of MLB.com:

He did make a great play and a nice gesture, but unfortunately he did it at the wrong time.

For his efforts (or the ballboy's), Roberts received a ground rule double, however it was likely he would have had that anyway without the ballboy's help.
