A Rays ballboy showed off quick reflexes and soft hands on this catch

Every so often, MLB ballboys find themselves in the spotlight. Already this season, a Giants ballboy misplayed a ground ball:

And a Rays ballboy lacked sufficient ups to make a spectacular catch:

On Tuesday night, a Rays ballboy once again found himself in a position to make a play, and, to put it simply, he seized that opportunity. On a sharp line drive from Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas in the 12th inning, the ballboy had to act quickly to make the play.

Unfortunately for the Rays, the catch did not count as an out as Moustakas hit a home run to win the game, 7-6, later in the at-bat.
