Play of the Day: Kelly Shoppach shows them worms he means business

Words sort of fail here. Let’s just say that, at the end of the year, Andy Dirks will have a stolen base in his stat line for which he probably owes Kelly Shoppach an assist.

Go here to see why.

Nice throw, Kelly.

The Royals and Rangers played the first game of spring training today. A few other teams (the Red Sox, Tigers and Twins) played or are currently playing college squads, but Kansas City-Texas is our first matchup of big league teams. Baseball’s back, baby! And you know what baseball means?

Kansas City’s Jorge Soler, who hit 48 homers last year to lead the American League, offered us the year’s first glimpse at recreational baseball murder when he took Kolby Allard out over the left field yard.

Mmm. That’s the good stuff. Here’s to eight and a half months more of that. Bring me the dingers.
