A candidate for the Worst Spectator in Major League Baseball was at Kauffman Stadium this weekend.
On Friday, a fan was in position to catch a home-run ball hit by Royals first baseman Nick Pratto.
Unfortunately for the man, the ball hit off the heel of his glove
That fan didn’t finish the weekend empty-handed.
He got a ball that Padres outfielder Juan Soto hit for a home run Sunday.
Thing is, he didn’t catch this one either.
The look on the face of the kid who had the ball taken and another fan tells you this was a bad situation.
Here’s another look at the theft, and a comment from former Royals minor-league pitcher Daniel Tillo,
who claimed the fan pulled that same stunt last week in Oregon.
it’s possible the guy who took the ball tried to give the kid who actually caught it a Royals jersey
