On Sunday, a Kansas City Royals fan jumped into the fountain behind the outfield wall at Kaufmann Stadium to get a home run ball hit by Royals catcher Humberto Quintero.

(DISCLAIMER: Holdout Sports does not condone this behavior.)



The fan ignored the warning sign which clearly stated that "Persons entering the fountains will be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law". Naturally he was ejected from the stadium, although it did appear that he was allowed to keep the baseball. So, was it worth it?

Royals organization doesn’t understand anatomy behind throwing a baseball

Royals fans, today we finally have the reason the Kansas City Royals have been completely inept and unsuccessful in developing starting pitching in the organization.Simply put, Royals officials do not understand the process of the human body throwing a pitch. Well, they didn't understand it until team officials met with  fire-baller 19 year-old Baltimore Orioles prospect, Dylan...

Giovotella wants to help Royals win

The conventional wisdom has been that when Royals prospect Johnny Giavotella was going to get promoted from Triple-A Omaha this season, he would then become the full-time starter at second base. The organizational philosophy is simple: It's better for Giavotella to get his at-bats and work on his defense at Omaha rather than sit at the big-league level. Well, interestingly...

Moose, Hos and Hoch: a few musings about the first 29 games.

29 games are done. The Royals are 10-19. Did we expect them to be a little better record-wise? Of course! Are we surprised? Not a chance. A brutal 12 game losing streak left fans, players and coaches downtrodden early on in what many already call another lost season. On the bright side, the Royals are 10-7 outside of that streak, split a four game series with the Yanks and are over...

Kansas City Celebrates George Brett With Mini Pine Tar Bat Giveaway (Photo)

The Royals may be struggling on the field, but as far as in-game promotions go, they're league leaders. Kansas City gave out mini pine tar bats before Sunday's game against the Yankees in honor of George Brett's memorable pine tar incident many years ago. The small bats were painted to give the appearance that they had pine tar way up the handle, mimicking the famous...

Royals recall Mazzaro, option Hottovy to Triple-A

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Kansas City Royals have recalled right-hander Vin Mazzaro from Triple-A Omaha to provide support for their exhausted bullpen. Poor starting pitching the past two games forced the Royals to make the move before Tuesday night's game against Boston. Luke Hochevar went 2 1-3 innings against the Yankees before Jonathan Sanchez was pulled with none out in...

Johnny Giavotella joins the Royals, but for how long?

What an interesting Wednesday for the Kansas City Royals. Before the game with the Boston Red Sox, the Royals called up infielder Johnny Giavotella and put LHP Jonathan Sanchez on the 15-day disabled list with biceps tendinitis. Then for Wednesday’s game, Manager Ned Yost put Giavotella in the lineup as the designated hitter, Billy Butler at first base and Irving Falu at third...

Duffy stays grounded during trials of baseball

The radar gun loves Danny Duffy. It loves him the way the camera loves Kate Upton. He throws a ball that cracks when it hits the catchers mitt, the sound of leather struck by lightning. According to FanGraphs.com, among starters whove logged at least 20 innings, the fastball velocity of the Royals left-hander is tops in the American League (95.3 miles per hour, on average), and...

Recap: Controversial call helps lift Royals over Sox 4-3

The Sox put themselves in an early hole they couldn't climb out of in tonight's loss, in part thanks to a controversial call made on a play in the outfield. A fly ball was hit to left that a retreating Cody Ross appeared to catch, but as he made a couple of steps the ball came out of his glove, hit the wall, and then went back into his glove. The umpires ruled that Ross...

The lefty was pounded for six runs in three innings on May 7, and has a 6.75 ERA through his first six outings. He was acquired by the Royals over the winter for outfielder Melky Cabrera.

Butler's 3-run homer helps Royals beat Red Sox

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Boston Red Sox have moved Daniel Bard from the bullpen, where he was very effective last year, to the rotation. For seven innings against the Kansas City Royals it looked like a wise decision, but a tiring Bard opened the eighth inning by walking Jarrod Dyson and Alex Gordon. That was manager Bobby Valentine's cue to bring in reliever Matt Albers, who...
