As Del Griffith once famously noted, “We can laugh about it now, we’re all right.”
And Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer did have a laugh after he forgot how many outs there were during the Royals’ 4-0 win over the Tigers on Thursday at Kauffman Stadium.
Hosmer made a great catch in the fifth inning. He thought it was a great way to end the Tigers’ half of the frame, so he tossed the ball to a fan in the stands.
Whoops, it was only the second out.
