The Braves were taking on Tampa Bay at Tropicana Field this past Sunday when a Rays ballboy had the misfortune of booting a foul ball grounder right in front of the Atlanta bullpen.  Immediately the players started giving the poor kid the business, with Livan Hernandez being the most vociferous of the hecklers.  Not only does he harass the ballboy to no end, he also showers him in sunflower seeds while the rest of the Braves pitchers playfully laugh at Hernandez’s antics.

But it seems that the ballboys in Tampa Bay are cut from a different cloth, because not only does he take the good-natured abuse from the Braves bullpen like a champ, he wins the day by getting the last laugh on Hernandez (Ed. note:  Anyone else surprised that Livan is just 38-years-old?  I swore he broke into the majors in 1983).

Video follows the jump…

Well, thanks to our intrepid Rays ballboy we now know how to get back at a big league pitcher who mocks people and throws sunflowers seeds at them after they misplay a foul ball grounder.

You just leave them hanging.
