Judging the Royals

A brief survey of outfield positioning

When the Royals are on defense, watch the top step of their dugout and you’ll see Rusty Kuntz positioning the outfielders. If he wants to move Alex Gordon, he’ll use his left hand. If he’s moving Jeff Francoeur he’ll use his right hand. If he’s moving the centerfielder — Lorenzo Cain or Jarrod Dyson — Rusty will use both hands. He’ll wave them in the desired direction and then give them a stop sign when they’ve reached the right spot.
