Chubby Kid Totally Oversells Injury and Gets Baseball For It

Fake it 'til ya make it, kid.

Often times, a young boy won’t start crying after he hurts himself until he looks around to see if anybody else saw him. Sometimes he cries because he’s really hurt, but most of the time it seems to be a combination of embarrassment and a need for attention.

But this young San Francisco Giants fan took it to another level during last night’s Nationals-Giants game.

With the Nationals leading 2-0 in the top of the second inning, Tyler Colvin hit a hard ground ball down the first-base line that hopped up into the stands for a ground rule double. From there, this little porker stole the show:

We’ve watched the video a dozen times, mostly because watching fat kids fall down is hilarious. But we’re willing to go as far as saying that the ball might not have even hit the kid.

Who knows? Maybe he really was hurt. Or maybe he realized that the woman in the row in front of him was laughing at him, and a high level of embarrassment set in. Either way, it looks like that leg didn’t hurt too much as he stood up to wave to the crowd once he realized he was on TV.

Playing baseball probably isn’t in this kid’s future, but we’ll bet he can throw a ball better than 50 Cent: 50 Cent Throws Out the Worst First Pitch in the History of First Pitches
