Less than 18 months ago, many people in the nation were enraged.
The Royals had eight players leading the All-Star Game voting at one point in June 2015, and fans of other teams fumed at what they perceived to be ballot-box stuffing, even though it was online voting.
Most egregious among those eight Royals: Second baseman Omar Infante was hitting .204 at that time and had passed Houston’s Jose Altuve. Soon enough, #VoteOmar became a running joke here among fans, who honestly didn’t want Infante to be starting for the Royals.
Fast forward to Tuesday’s Election Day, and at least one person did vote for Infante (who was released by the Royals this past season) to be president of the United States.
