Dodgers ballboy takes funny tumble into stands after trying to snag foul ball (Video)

The elimination number of the Los Angeles Dodgers is down to one, but they're not going quietly just yet. A 3-2 walkoff win over the San Francisco Giants on Monday night kept the team's hopes of forcing a Thursday tiebreaker with the St. Louis Cardinals alive for at least another day.

We're serious about it being a total team effort, too. Watch how bad this Dodgers ballboy wanted Buster Posey's foul ball — and the hilarity that ensued after he fell into the stands without it:

As MLB.com's Twitter feed said, "we've seen players flying into the stands to make a grab, but a ballboy?" Nope, can't say we've seen that one.

Here's the thing, though: While the fans at Dodger Stadium and those of us at home drew a lot of amusement from the ballboy's tumble in the stands, it looks like he was trying to use his glove to protect the fans behind him — just like that Padres ballgirl did to the Braves bullpen earlier this season.

So for that, we give our gloveman a big BLS head nod. Good job, great effort.
