NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Nobody said Rex Hudler was an astronomer.
But this is pretty embarrassing.
On Tuesday night, the Royals' television broadcaster mistook the moon for a planet.
The camera zoomed in on the moon, to which Hudler said, "It's a beautiful planet."
Play-by-play man Ryan Lefebvre waited a few seconds -- likely in amazement -- before awkwardly responding, "Well, it's a moon."
Hudler, who played for the Yankees in 1984 and 1985, didn't seem entirely convinced.
"That looks like a planet to me," Hudler responded.
Stick to baseball, Rex. Stick to baseball.
