Still, some Royals players were more than ready to protect themselves from flying objects in case anyone in the crowd decided to make their feelings heard after a call on Tuesday.
The dugout hijinks happened when Alcides Escobar was hit by a pitch on his knuckles in the second inning, but only awarded first base after a video review. When the call was overturned, fans booed loudly, Jeremy Guthrie and Paulo Orlando covered their heads in mock anticipation of being pelted. Johnny Cueto jumped up and down, and others pointed but no foreign objects came.
Here's the call which made the Royals take cover. If you look closely, you can see the players in the dugout getting ready for the deluge which never happened.
Now if the Canucks could only keep the fruits and vegetables out of the cheap seats.
