George Lopez serves as Dodgers ball boy for a day

Tuesday May 26th, 2015

If the first baseline ball boy at Monday's Braves-Dodgers game looked a little long in the tooth to you, you were right, as actor and comedian George Lopez donned a Dodgers uniform and held the position.

Lopez looked sharp out in the field wearing a jersey with "Georgie" written across the back, and fielded his position well, laying off a ball that just landed fair as it headed right towards him.

The stunt began earlier in the day with Lopez musing on Twitter whether the Dodgers would allow an elderly ball boy like himself, before Lopez accepting the position, which he renamed "Ball Vato."
