First baseman Eric Hosmer received a standing ovation on his return to Kauffman Stadium on Thursday.
Hosmer, 32, began his career with the Kansas City Royals.
During 7 years in the organization that saw him born in the Major League Baseball (MLB, for its acronym in English), the dangerous hitter and exquisite first baseman won the gold glove four times, won a Silver Slugger and was called up to the 2016 All-Star Game.

Additionally, Hosmer was instrumental in the Royals winning the 2015 World Series.
For the 2018 campaign, the American baseball player signed a contract with the San Diego Padres for 8 years and 138 million dollars.
However, after four and a half seasons, the Californian organization decided a few days ago to change him to the Boston Red Sox.
