Back in May we wrote about the Louisiana music teacher who won $1 million by throwing a perfect game in “MLB 2K11” using Roy Halladay versus the Astros.
His name is Brian Kingrey and now he’s the subject of Google’s latest nationally televised commercial, which includes interviews with his students and tells the story of how he knew nothing about baseball before starting to play the game.
The Royals recalled infielder Ramon Torres from Triple-A Omaha on Saturday. He didn’t get into a game until starting Thursday night’s game against the Rangers, batting ninth.
In the top of the second inning, facing Austin Bibens-Dirkx, Torres laced a single up the middle. Center fielder Delino DeShields charged in on it, attempting to keep Ryan Goins at second base, but the ball went right past his glove, through his legs, and nearly trickled all the way to the warning track. Goins scored easily and Torres was waved home, too. He managed to narrowly beat the throw, touching home plate with his left hand on a head-first slide.
🚨LITTLE LEAGUE HOMER ALERT! 🚨
Ramón Torres scores after Delino DeShields Jr. misplays a would-be single. @Royals go up 2-0.
