For Pete's Sake

Several Royals players send Mother’s Day wishes to their moms

This is one of the good sides of social media.

It’s Mother’s Day, of course, and athletes have been sharing photos of their mothers, wives and grandmothers. The Royals have been particularly active (and by the way, this is a great column from Vahe Gregorian on Salvador Perez and his mother).

Here are some of the pictures the Royals players have shared:


The best moms in the world! Love you both!

Several of the Royals also showed off their special Mother’s Day gear for Sunday’s game at Cleveland. It appears as though Eric Hosmer has his mom’s name (Ileana) on his bat.
