Being a member of the grounds crew seems like a great gig.

Free entry to a baseball game, including Thursday night’s American League Division Series opener between the Royals and Astros. However, one member of the Royals crew had an unfortunate accident while unrolling the tarp at Kauffman Stadium:

That’s Adam Wallace of Lee’s Summit. He’s a senior at Raymore-Peculiar. The Royals said Wallace was checked out by medical personnel, and Wallace said in a text message that he was not injured.

Twitter, naturally, had a field day.
