Boy grabs ball off mound between innings

A small child at Friday's Tigers-Blue Jays game wanted to get a ball. He ended up getting quite a fright.

While the Tigers began to take the field to warm up for the top of the eighth inning, there stood a little kid on the mound, much to everyone's surprise -- players, security personnel, everyone. Apparently he had run out onto the field as soon as the inning ended.

It seemed to be an innocent mistake. According to a local photographer, the child had gone to the gate just to the outfield side of the first-base dugout, where fans often gather between innings in hopes that a visiting player -- often the first baseman -- will throw them a ball. The kid was looking for a ball, and when he saw one sitting on the mound for the next pitcher -- in this case, Brandon Lyon -- to pick up, the child climbed over the gate and went after it.

Sure enough, once he got to the mound, he picked up the ball and ran back towards the gate from which he came, losing his cap along the way. Those few who saw it looked on, not really knowing how to react. By the time he reached the first-base line, however, he had caught the attention of security and the grounds crew.

The boy was clearly scared once security stood over him, realizing what he had done. However, according to the photographer, a man in the crowd, supposed a family member, identified him and explained the situation, that he took his suggestion too literally to go get a ball. Eventually, the boy has hoisted up over the gate and handed back to the man in the stands without further incident.

And yes, he did get to keep the ball. But as the saying goes, kids, don't try this at home.
