A Kansas City Royals fan scored playoff tickets after asking a player for them on Twitter.
Nicholas Knapple fired a tweet at rookie relief pitcher Brandon Finnegan Saturday asking for a pair of tickets to the American League Championship Series (ALCS). The pitcher replied within a few hours, and two days later Knapple had tickets.
"@bfinny29 help a broke Royals fan out with a couple playoffs tix so I can take my gf. #please," wrote Knapple.
A few tweets and days later, Finnegan tweeted: "I might be able to get 2 more."
"Go get em Finny," Knapple replied before adding that he had been following the first-year pitcher since he played at minor league Omaha.
"I have 2 for you tomorrow night," Finnegan said.
The pitcher told Knapple to pick the tickets up at Will Call before giving his biggest fan an even bigger surprise.
Knapple offered to buy him some KC barbecue as a thank you for the tickets.
"I'll gladly go eat with you but you don't have to [pay]," Finnegan replied.
This just goes to show that you can have your cake and eat it too, at least when your favorite team makes the playoffs for the first time in 29 years.
The Royals play Game 3 of the ALCS Tuesday night against the Baltimore Orioles.
Knapple and his girlfriend will be front and center as the Royals try to #TakeTheCrown.
