Passing on the skills

Here is a cool 1994 Collectors Choice card of Wilson Alvarez demonstrating his pitching grip to an awkward-looking teenager in a White Sox jersey.

Is he the batboy? I guess the bat and ball boys would have an opportunity for a lot of free big league baseball instruction. However, as far as I know no former batboy has ever made the major leagues.
