Sure, it wasn’t a good day for the Royals on Sunday.
Two losses in a span of a few hours is tough to swallow. But Alex Gordon showed once again why he’s the best defensive left fielder in baseball. He went into the stands to make a catch and even knocked over a White Sox fan.*
After the game, Gordon said of the play, “I just said, ‘Eff it’ and jumped into the stands.”
* There won’t be any suspensions coming out of that interaction.
Take a look (video from MLB.com):
A picture of Gordon on the ground after the catch by a fan in the right spot at the right time has made its way around the Internet and was even shown on TV.
