Alex Gordon accidentally runs into fan attempting a catch, but apologizes because he's a gentleman

We were taught many rules when we were young: Always say please and thank you, hold the door open and, when making a defensive play, make sure you apologize to any fans you accidentally run into.

OK, the latter doesn't quite happen as often, but Alex Gordon proved he still has those manners he learned many moons ago.

When the Orioles were hosting the Royals on Tuesday night, Gordon ran for a ball that was smacked down the left-field line and into the corner by Adam Jones. As Gordon tracked the ball, he hopped over the wall to attempt the catch -- and, in the process, he accidentally ran into an Orioles fan who was sitting in the front row.

In true gentleman fashion, he apologized. What a nice guy.
