Home Run Fountain Swimmer
Regardless of the Royals' dreadful home record, fans still love going to the K. A May 6 tilt with the Yankees was no different with the bleachers packed. Quintero cracked his first bomb as a member of the team, and a cargo-shorts-clad fan, recognizing an important event in team history, hopped a small fence that keeps fans out of the fountains. A quick-thinking security guard grabbed the spectator to avert a fountain plunge. But the fan shook his grip and took a dip for the souvenir. Bobbing for baseballs in the K's fountains, of course, is a faux pas. The drenched fan was bounced from the stadium, and the Royals lost 10-4.
