WATCH: Home run fireworks go off premature as Alex Gordon catches ball at wall

  • David Whitlock

Kansas City Royals two-time Gold Glove OF Alex Gordon fooled the crowd, the fireworks guy, and probably his pitcher when he appeared to concede a home run to Chicago White Sox SS Alexei Ramirez, then hopped down and calmly squeezed it with ease.  Watch as Ramirez continues to round bases and finally the U.S. Cellular Field fireworks guy figures that Ramirez must be right: (Credit: MLB.com)

Fireworks for the great catch?

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
