[VIDEO] Ball boy interferes with catch at Royals-Jays game

April 15 (UPI) -- A ball boy at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City got a little overeager during the Royals game against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, interfering with a fly ball into right field foul territory.

Jays outfielder Rajai Davis chased after a fly ball hit into foul ground by the Royals Alcides Escobar, and would have likely made the catch in front of the seats had an unnamed ball boy not made for the play himself.

Fortunately, the ball boy's blunder did not interfere with the game's outcome -- Escobar grounded out on the next pitch -- and Davis managed to avoid a painful collision.

The Jays ultimately won the game, 8-4.

Here's to hoping the ball boy has learned to stay out of the way in the future.
