Boy Licks Baseball At Twins-A's Game (VIDEO)

Game-used cowhide? Yum!

A young fan gets a souvenir baseball from a ballboy at Tuesday's Minnesota Twins-Oakland A's game in Minneapolis and promptly licks it. Watch above as Dad is a split-second too late to record the save.

It isn't the first time a kid has treated a baseball like a scoop of ice cream. But we wonder if any child in this situation has said to himself, "Gee, this vanilla tastes like dirt, grass and sweat."
