Little Rays fan shows off Matt Joyce home run ball while adults madly continue search

Rays kid

Today seems to be the day for perfectly timed photos around the old blog here. First we had Paul Konerko, Chris Getz and Rusty Kuntz teaming up for a pic that was inappropriate, juvenile, and altogether hilarious. Now we have this awesome screenshot from Wednesday night’s Tampa Bay-Baltimore game. Rays leftfielder Matt Joyce hit a walk-off home run to give Tampa Bay the 8-7 victory, and while a bunch of adults were scrambling like mad to grab Joyce’s home run ball, there was a young fan, goofy grin on his face, proudly displaying the ball that the mass of grown ups was madly searching for.

This kid proves that sometimes people small in stature, and blessed with small appendages, come up with the biggest prizes.
