Bird Law Newsbeat

Royals manager Ned Yost on retaliatory pitches and unwritten rules: ‘Let boys be boys’

As he sat inside his office on Tuesday, Yost was asked if he ever got nervous about a standout player such as Eric Hosmer potentially getting hurt because of an arbitrarily applied written rule — whether it be an errant pitch in the hands or arm or an injury during a brawl. Yost shrugged off the inquiry.

“I’m nervous every time Eric Hosmer crosses the street,” Yost said. “He could get hit by a car. A bird could poop in his eye, and we’d lose him for a week. C’mon, you can get hurt in a bunch of different ways. I’m not going to sit here and worry about a guy getting hurt in a fight.
