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.
