Here is another example that shows professional athletes are just people, like you and me.
On Monday, Royals catcher Salvador Perez hit a home run and a double in a spring-training game against the Seattle Mariners and raised his average to .800. It was a heck of a start for Perez.
Among those who were impressed: Royals left-hander Danny Duffy, who tweeted this:

Well, that’s interesting, because here was the reply from Royals’ first baseman Eric Hosmer, who apparently made a run to In-N-Out Burger with Perez.
Perez had a very good excuse for getting In-N-Out: It was his cheat day. At least that’s how this message translates:
Duffy wasn’t about to judge. That makes sense, because if you’ve ever had In-N-Out, you make an effort to return.
For the record, Royals left fielder Alex Gordon is not on Twitter, so I can’t confirm if he was among those who were eating In-N-Out.
Who am I kidding? Of course he wasn’t.
