via mlb.com Catching a foul ball can be a rather exciting moment for a fan.  Some cherish it more than others.  When Kansas City Royals play-by-play man Ryan Lefebvre caught a foul ball heading toward the booth, it made color commentator and former Big League journeyman Rex Hudler’s year. White Sox third baseman Conor Gillaspie hit what seemed like a harmless pop-up behind the plate that Lefebvre called was coming back toward the booth.  And that’s what things just got adorable. I don’t know if Hudler’s opinion of Lefebvre is that low that he didn’t think he was capable of catching a can of corn or if Hudler and Lefebvre have a proud father/son relationship.  Either way, you could hear the glee in Hudler’s WWE-like voice over what appeared to be a great snatch. As my good friend Isaac over at Guyism might say, “adorbs, you guys.”

Santana's pitch disappears behind home plate at The K

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The box score called it a passed ball, which it was.

Preview: Royals need bats to wake up in Chicago

The Kansas City Royals' slump has dropped them further back in the playoff race, and their postseason hopes likely will continue fading unless their suddenly stagnant offense can get back on track.

Eric Hosmer, Patience, and Expectations
