The Oakland A’s ballboy who worked the rightfield line on Sunday is an absolute legend.

During the top of the third inning, he got up to stop a Christian Colon foul ball from heading into the stands, snagging it in midair. Then, he played it off impossibly cool, giving the ball to a fan and walking back to his post camly.

Here’s to you, boss ballboy.
