The Braves' ballboy made a seriously impressive diving attempt on a Freddy Galvis foul ball

A young man showed off some impressive skills for the Braves on Thursday night. He may not have been on the team, but he was sporting a Braves jersey. Yep, the defensive display was brought to you by the ballboy.

In the top of the seventh inning of Atlanta's 4-2 win over the Padres, Freddy Galvis lined a foul ball down the right-field line. Naturally, it was out of play, but that didn't stop the ballboy for making a play of his own:

The grab had all the ingredients it takes to whip up the perfect dig: A dive, a back-handed trap and some swag once it was all over.

No wonder he couldn't stop smiling.
