‘Bacon Tuesday’:


Kansas City Royals right fielder Jeff Francoeur had 20 personal pizzas delivered Wednesday to Oakland Athletics fans in section 149. The gesture came a day after the second annual “Bacon Tuesday,” as it has become known.

Last year, Francoeur tossed a ball wrapped in a $100 bill into the elevated seats above his outfield spot, instructin­g fans to use it to buy bacon or beer.

They now love Francoeur and cheer him at every chance. On Tuesday, fans wore “Bacon Tuesday” shirts and made a large piece of paper bacon to hang from the railing.

They’ll have to enjoy the pizza while they can. This marks the Royals’ lone Bay Area trip this year.
