Kansas City Royals' Zack Greinke Goes Viral For Sharing Priceless Moment in Outfield with Kids

It hasn't been a great year for Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Zack Greinke on the mound, but the moment he shared with his kids on the field recently is something that really counts.

It has not been a great year for Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Zack Greinke on the field, but the moment he shared recently on the field with his sons is something to make anyone feel good.

Greinke and his sons went viral for the scene of Greinke throwing batting practice to his son, with his son switch-hitting and bat-flipping a home run off his dad while the other retrieved the balls.

Zack Greinke soft tossing to his kids. 

It also caught the attention of researcher and baseball personality Sarah Langs, who captioned it "BASEBALL is the best!!!"

Blue Jays broadcasters Dan Shulman and Buck Martinez, who can be heard in the above clip, were loving it as well.

It's unfortunate to see Greinke ending his career on such a downturn, as he's one of the best pitchers of the last 20 years. He's 1-15 for the Royals this season with a 5.47 ERA.

In his 20th year overall, he's played with the Royals, Brewers, Angels, Astros, Diamondbacks and Dodgers. Lifetime, he's 224-156 with a 3.50 ERA. He's a six-time All-Star, a six-time Gold Glove winner, a two-time ERA title winner and a Cy Young winner.

He's a free agent at the end of the year.

The Royals will take on the Blue Jays again on Sunday afternoon in Toronto.

First pitch is set for 1:37 p.m. ET as Cole Ragans (KC) pitches against Jose Berrios (TOR).

Ragans is 6-4 with a 3.00 ERA while Berrios is 9-10 with a 3.68.
