Jeff Francouer tapped third base coach in nuts after hitting triple (GIF)
Kansas City Royals outfielder Jeff Francouer hit a triple in the seventh inning of his team’s win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night, and he was so excited he decided to hand out a jimmy tap. Typically when a player reaches first or third base they go with something like a high-five or a fist bump for the base coach. That’s not Francouer’s style.
As you can see, Francouer decided to give Royals third base coach Eddie Rodriguez a friendly tap in the nuts. It was nothing like this accidental fist-pump to the groin or this blatant punch in the nuts, but it was probably enough to wake Rodriguez up if he was starting to get bored as the Royals opened things up. I’m sure he appreciated it.
