On Thursday, the Kansas City Royals pounded the Tampa Bay Rays, 10-1, at Tropicana Field. However, manager Ned Yost wasn't there.
Instead, Yost was in Sugar Hill, Ga. watching his daughter, Jenny, get married. But that doesn't mean Yost had both eyes on the wedding ceremony.
In fact, Yost admitted to following the game on his phone while his only daughter was going through one of the most important days of her life.
"I had the phone out, sitting on the pew right next to me, during the whole process," Yost said Friday afternoon.
"I was looking the whole time until the sixth inning came, and then I saw two runs, and I was relieved," Yost said. "Then I saw four and I saw seven, and eight. I just got a big smile on my face thinking they can handle it from there."
Yost reportedly filled out the lineup card before departing from his team on Wednesday. He must be doing something right because the Royals have now won nine out of ten games after their victory on Friday night.
Yost's unwavering dedication and a "rally BBQ sauce" could be part of the reason.
