Athletics ballboy lays out to save bullpen from line drive (VIDEO)

An athletic Athletics ballboy went the extra mile — or at least a few extra feet — to save the A's pitchers and closers from a line drive foul ball screaming towards the bullpen Saturday night.

With the ground ball bearing down on the Oakland players during their game against the Rays, there was little time to react, and the fast-thinking A's ballboy laid out to make a spectacular diving catch and save the night — pristine white uniform be damned.

The extra effort earned fist bumps from all of the A's pitching staff and dirt stains worthy of Mike Trout.
