Royals Pitcher Helps Guide Team Bus To Safety After Ice Hits Windshield

Royals Pitcher Helps Guide Team Bus To Safety After Ice Hits Windshield”

Monday's game was postponed because falling ice created an opening in the roof, but the Royals had a scary moment on Sunday night when the windshield of a team bus was shattered by ice while the team was driving to a hotel. The freak collision caused the windshield to shatter, with the resulting shards of glass injuring the driver.

Boyer, who pitched for the Boston Red Sox in 2017, quickly grabbed the wheel of the bus to help get it to a stop after realizing Folkerts was injured.

"He was bloodied up", Boyer told The Athletic about the driver, Fred Folkerts. Boyer then jumped in to help get the bus pulled over.

The bus carrying the players was traveling about 55 miles per hour when the ice hit the windshield, and Boyer said Folkerts was focused on getting the players to safety. "He had shards in his face, and he was locked in on trying to get the bus slowed down".

While the cancelations have been an inconvenience in the Royals' schedule, at least the team is safe thanks in part to Boyer's actions.

Alex Gordon told The Athletic, "He saved us".

Ice flew from the first Royals bus, which was carrying staff members, and almost wiped out the trailing vehicle.

Boyer, 36, joined the Royals last offseason on a minor league deal and made the team out of spring training.

Turns out the hole in the Rogers Centre roof was the second craziest thing to affect the Royals on their visit to Toronto.
