If you've ever been to a Major League Baseball game, you've undoubtedly seen the ballboys geared up in the home team's uniform on the sideline. It has some advantages, like you'll occasionally get to chat up progressional big leaguers, but when you're playing the Atlanta Braves and Livan Hernandez is not in the game, it appears you get showered with sunflower seeds (h/t Deadspin).
Hernandez tries to show it's in good fun, but hit the jump to see how the ballboy responds.
Yep, leaves him hanging.
It's a tough ground ball that eats the kid up, but he's also against the bench and his movement is limited a bit. Some general heckling is expected here.
