Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner broke the hearts of Royals fans thanks to his outstanding effort in the World Series.
That got Bumgarner the MVP award in the World Series and a trip to “The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.”
Before Bumgarner gave Fallon some underwear (which Fallon put on), he talked about the intimidating crowd at Kauffman Stadium.
Bumgarner came out of the bullpen in game seven and pitched the final five innings. Fallon asked how that felt to enter the game in relief.

“As soon as the gates open, it just goes crazy, booing me and hating on me, so I really wanted to start crying and turn around and run back to the bullpen,” Bumgarner said.
Royals fans can only wish that had happened.
