The baseball season is revving up and things are starting to get interesting and not just on the field.  In this week’s That Thing You Missed a baseball announcer makes a Royal Mistake, Justin Verlander can’t keep his eye on the ball, one fan blows it big time with this date and a Casanova is conceived.

1. Royals Announcer Confuses The Moon With A Planet

Rex Hurdler isn’t exactly known for his brilliant banter, but this comment is out of this world.  During a live broadcast he insisted the moon was actually a planet. What a space cadet.
