The Rangers' Foul Ball Kid Is Our New Hero

Categories: Sports

On Saturday night, the Rangers turned in yet another lackluster performance, dropping their second straight to the Toronto Blue Jays, 4-2. And yet the evening wasn't entirely a waste thanks to 10-year-old Austin Chaney, a.k.a. the Foul Ball Kid.

Watch the video above. You'll see Chaney scoop up a foul ball then, in an impromptu gesture of chivalry, turn and hand it to the ladies in the row behind him -- except the foul ball never leaves his glove. Chaney gives them a decoy he'd grabbed in his free hand.

The ladies were impressed. His mom, not so much.

"If they only knew him," she told WFAA. "He trips over the wind blowing!"

The fight over a thrown bat was the game's highlight.

He seems a bit young for PUA videos. Kid must be a 'natural'.

Never let the right hand know what the left hand is doing.

The ball the woman got now has more intrinsic value than the actual foul ball.
