GIFs: Royals P Kelvin Herrera Throws Wildest Of Wild Pitches


The Royals bullpen has been a disaster so far this season and no GIF sums that up better than Kelvin Herrera barely keeping this pitch within the confines of Kauffman Stadium:

So mark your calendars for June 6, 2014. That is the day of the first New York Yankees-Kansas City Royals matchup of the season,  the first chance to potentially witness a duel between Kelvin “Nuke Laloosh” Herrera and free-swinging Alfonso Soriano.  It will be a fascinating showdown between a pitcher who struggles to keep his pitches in the same area code and a batter who will swing at anything in the same area code.

The Royals organization will have reinforced netting behind home plate and the first 20,000 fans in attendance will be given Kevlar jackets emblazoned with the team’s logo. Also, those behind the dugouts will be given steel shields to deflect errant Soriano swings.

Rumor has it that they are also in negotiations to have the Durham Bull at the game as well in hopes of recreating a classic movie scene.
