Shooting off fireworks after a home run is pretty common around baseball — usually when the dinger is hit by the home team.
But a fireworks celebration for a visiting player? Not so much.
Well, that happened at Progressive Field on Tuesday night. And the fans didn't like it one bit.
In the top of the fifth inning, Kansas City Royals right fielder Alex Rios crushed a solo shot to left field. The home run alone drew boos from the home crowd. But those boos grew louder when fireworks started to go off as Rios rounded the bases.
Once the guy setting off the fireworks realized what he had done, ol' trigger finger couldn't help but be upset with himself and did his best to hide his face.
Dude. You have one job to do and you blew it — literally. And you gotta love that high-tech control booth.
