Little kid freaks out over foul ball at Dodgers game in Australia (Video)

Never let it be said that the people in Australia aren't hungry for baseball. At the very least, there's one kid ready to nearly send himself into convulsions over a foul ball.

Watch how he reacts during the exhibition game Thursday morning (our time) between the Los Angeles Dodgers and an Australian all-star team. The kid is all set to take home a souvenir, but the Aussie outfielder doesn't toss the ball far enough. The kid immediately goes into meltdown mode.

When a security guard mistakenly gives the foul ball to a different kid (how dare you try to snake the ball, young sir!), the crowd has the first kid's back. He eventually gets the ball and feels victorious. It's a good thing he got the ball, too, judging from his reactions, getting the ball thieved might have scarred the little dude for life.
