KANSAS CITY, Mo.—Royals’ reliever Ryan Madson was in a real jam.
Standing on the mound, he realized he had the wrong glove.
He meant to wear a mitt with son Luke’s name stitched on the thumb. Instead, this one said “Sean”—the boy’s younger brother.
“It threw me,” Madson said. “I didn’t know what to do.”
Then a funny thing happened.
