Yost laughed off being surrounded by security guards Tuesday after he wandered into a restricted area near Arrowhead Stadium trying to check out Kansas City Chiefs practice. Oh, no, sir. Not on Andy Reid's watch! MLB.com has the details:
"I ran today and almost got arrested for a taking a peek at the Chiefs doing their minicamp. They surrounded me with their security," Yost said good-naturedly. "I'm not going to sell any secrets."
Well, NFL teams are notoriously guarded about their practice activities, and this area, unknown to Yost, happened to be off-limits.
"Hey, I just wanted to see what was going on," Yost told the security guards. "They said, 'Well, you can't be here, it's closed.'"The Royals and Chiefs share the Truman Sports Complex, and Yost has been manager since 2010, but that doesn't mean he's automatically recognized around town, or anything. Regardless, Yost has taken precautions in the past to remain under the radar, even calling himself "Frank" at Starbucks when going for coffee and biscotti. Obviously, this tactic backfired. He had to come out as manager of the Royals, and he had to do it now, if he wanted to avoid getting tasered by Chiefs security. - Big League Stew
