Fair or foul?

It seemed that even Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer wasn’t so sure — and he was the one who hit the ball. During the Royals’ 8-1 win over the Minnesota Twins on Friday night at Kauffman Stadium, Hosmer launched a ball that barely stayed fair down the left-field for a three-run home run.

It was so close that it was reviewed, and the home run was upheld.

After circling the bases, Hosmer waited in the dugout for the ruling to be made. When it was ruled a homer, his 10th of the season, Hosmer turned into Tigger and bounced down the dugout.

It was fun to see:

Here is the home run and a longer look at the dugout celebration:
