Ballboy bails on liner, hangs onto stool as he falls into stands

The Marlins were already up 1-0 on the Cardinals when Matt Holliday came up to bat in the bottom of the first. As some of the folks were still finding their seats, Holliday sent a hot liner toward the right-field corner where one ballboy was particularly alert if not incredibly graceful. 

As the liner tails toward the crowd, the ballboy abandons his post and takes his seat with him as he falls into the stands and the lap of an unsuspecting fan. Luckily, everyone came up smiles so we're free to mock him for his little tumble.

Oof. Could have been worse though. He could have stuck with it and made the play ... and later realized it was still in play.
