This year has really been a revelation for me. I’ve always said being a ball boy is one of those lose-lose situations. Sure you get front row seats to your favorite sporting event, but at what cost….
I’ve always thought baseball ball boys (or girls) were pretty much the kings (or queens) of being ball people. However, this year has really shown me that the baseball people may have it easy. This year has taught us all that being a ball person in other sports can be absolutely horrific.
Don’t believe me.. Hit the jump to see some rough ball people moments…

The San Francisco Giants love their elderly ball dudes. I can’t really say anything bad, they give it their all!
