Video of junior smooth operator goes viral

VIDEO of a pint-sized 'smooth operator' at a baseball game is the latest viral video to capture the attention of internet audiences around the world.

A boy in the front row of seats catches the game ball in his glove at a Toronto Blue Jays/Texas Rangers game and immediately turns around to pass the ball in his hand to a group of slightly older girls behind him.

The recipient puts her hand on her chest and flashes a big smile, clearly touched by the gesture.

But, all is not as it seems. Watch the video to see what actually happened.
