Royals Ball Boy Fields Fair Ball, Compensates By Ignoring Foul Ball: Look at that face. That's the face … #MLB

After fielding the ball off the bat of Brian Roberts, the ballboy was a nice dude and gave it to a fan—only 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.

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.
