If there were more players like Jeff Francoeur across professional sports, the in-stadium experience would be a lot more enjoyable for fans. Francoeur is a master of coming up with creative ways to interact with fans at the ballpark, and he was back at it again this week.
During a game against the White Sox on Tuesday, the Royals right fielder went into the corner to chase a foul ball. The ball ended up making its way into the seats, but Francoeur figured he might as well enjoy a snack since he already had to lean over the railing. He dug his hand right into a fan’s bucket of popcorn and walked away chuckling.
While the group of fans who received $100 from Francoeur for drinks during a game or the ones who got free pizza were a bit luckier than this fan, it’s still a pretty cool story to share with your friends.Google+
