KANSAS CITY, Mo. — FOX 4’s Nick Vasos received an email from a granddaughter whose grandma apparently has a little crush on Rusty Kuntz, Kansas City Royals’ first base coach.
She attached a picture of her grandma at the Royals game, holding a sign Grandma made. The woman wasn’t seeking the attention of Lorenzo Cain or Mike Moustakas or Eric Hosmer, but instead a little love-pat from Rusty Kuntz, 61.
The sign reads “Rusty, Pat MY butt & tell ME good game!”
Granddaughter Kristen Wells wanted to thank Rusty for making Gigi’s (Grandma Cora May’s) day.
Gigi got mostly what she wanted.
“Rusty acknowledge the sign with a smile and a wave and we all got a kick out of it, especially Gigi,” said Wells. “During the next inning Rusty came over to our suite and asked for Gigi and gave her a pat on the head and told her ‘good game!’
