Cespedes’ error, Hosmer’s slide, Salvy’s arm highlight fan reaction from Royals’ opener

Royals fans haven’t lost their creativity.

There were lots of funny posts on social media during the Royals’ 4-3 season-opening win over the Mets on Sunday. They weren’t all from Royals fans, but they majority were.
