Royals pitcher Brandon Finnegan gave fan playoff tickets over Twitter

Tuesday October 14th, 2014

Kansas City Royals relief pitcher Brandon Finnegan made a fan's postseason experience a whole lot happier when he granted his Twitter wish for two tickets to an American League Championship Series game at Kauffman Stadium.

After throwing out the social media equivalent of a Hail Mary by tweeting at Finnegan for tickets, Nicholas Knapple got very lucky. So lucky, in fact, that he seemed unable to believe it.

Finnegan even stayed in touch after the rain out on Monday night to make sure Knapple got to go to a game. The pitcher also agreed to go get BBQ with the fan in Kansas City.
