We hope you are spending this Mother’s Day watching some Royals baseball with the woman that made you who you are today - mom! The Royals certainly appreciate the special lady in their lives, giving tribute to their mothers on social media.
The Royals, of course, wore pink again in honor of moms and for Breast Cancer Awareness Day.
Danny Duffy wouldn’t be in the big leagues without his mother - who actually caught him!
"I think Danny was about a sophomore in high school," Deanna recalled, "and one of his fastballs skipped in and hit me, and I thought it broke my tibia.
"I still have a divot in that bone to this day."
That's when Danny shut it down.
"I had to because I was bruising her," Danny said. "But we still played catch and long toss. She's unbelievable."
Others went to social media to express their gratitude.

Happy Mother's Day to my mom. Thank you for always putting your family first, showing us right from wrong, the hours you spent driving us to sporting events, playing catch with me in the backyard for god knows how long, working over time to give us a good life, and giving us the most selfless amount of love anyone could ask for. I hope to as good of parent as you one day. Love you
Happy Mother's Day to my mom! She is the best mom anyone could ever ask for! I hope you have an amazing day! Also, Happy early Mother's Day to my beautiful wife! She'll officially become a mom in 3 months and we can't wait for little Bodhi to get here! She's already being such an amazing mom and I can't wait to see you hold and take care of our little boy! Love y'all both and so blessed to have y'all in my life!
