In Kansas City, Eric Hosmer might be more popular than Justin Bieber
Last night, Justin Bieber had a concert in Kansas City. That's cool, we guess, but if the crowds in the streets after the show are anything to go by, there was a much bigger star in the area. That's right, ladies and gentleman - Eric Hosmer was there:

Last year, the Royals won their first World Series since 1985, with one of the most memorable moments being Hosmer's mad dash home. Obviously that's way more exciting that listening to some Canadian kid apologize to you. Just look how amped his fans are!

But Hosmer wasn't alone. He also brought Alex Gordon and Wade Davis:

And apparently, the adoring crowd was all part of Gordon's plan:
