Let this Mets ballboy demonstrate the true meaning of 'flashing the leather'

In the third inning against the Marlins at Citi Field on Wednesday, Eric Campbell fouled off a pitch that shattered his bat. The ball ricocheted left, made a beeline for the third-base wall and bounced up off of the tarp.

At which point the Mets ballboy said, "It's cool, I got this" and flashed his made-for-the-hot-corner reflexes.

Once more: LOOK AT THOSE REFLEXES. 

Look at that pivot. Look at that stretch. Look at that grab. I'm pretty sure this ballboy just became a Minor League third baseman somewhere.
