Hosmer mobbed by fans, rescues girl after Bieber concert
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Eric Hosmer proved he is more of a heartthrob in Kansas City than Justin Bieber and more than a hero on the baseball field.
The Royals first baseman rescued a girl from being trampled after she was knocked down outside the Sprint Center following a Bieber concert Wednesday night.
When Hosmer was spotted leaving the concert with several teammates, he was mobbed by mostly teenage girls, with one getting knocked to the ground.
Hosmer said Friday before the Royals played the Minnesota Twins that he simply did what anybody would do: ''You see a gal on the floor, you help her up.''
He said he was surprised by the attention he received, but acknowledged that, ''I guess that's what happens when you win a world championship - you become more popular.''
