Mr. Triple, Paulo Orlando journeys from Brazil to KC

Royals-Orlando

MAY 2015 – Tom Hanks was wrong. Hanks, who played manager Jimmy Dugan in the movie “A League Of Their Own,” groused “There’s no crying in baseball.”

Paulo Orlando had moist eyes after tripling off Chicago White Sox left-hander John Danks in his first major league at-bat after walking in his first plate-appearance.

“It was just great to see,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “When he hit that triple, you could see everyone in our dugout get excited for him.”
