During the Royals’ game on Tuesday night, KSHB (Channel 41) meteorologist Gary Lezak was on the CrownVision board at Kauffman Stadium and he made a pledge.
Lezak promised to paint his head blue if the Royals won the game.
Royals closer Kelvin Herrera had given up a two-run home run in the top of the ninth inning, so Detroit had a 3-2 lead and it looked like Lezak was safe. But the Royals rallied behind Alcides Escobar, Brandon Moss and Alex Gordon.
Never miss a local story.
So on Thursday, during KSHB’s news at 6:30 p.m., Lezak let sports director Mick Shaffer and anchor Rhiannon Ally turn his head blue.
“It’s been the best part of my career so far,” Schaffer cracked as he painted.
