The Kansas City Royals' right fielder had 20 personal pizzas
delivered Wednesday to Oakland Athletics fans in section 149. The
gesture came a day after the second annual "Bacon Tuesday," as it
has become known.

Last year, Francoeur tossed a ball wrapped in a $100 bill into
the elevated seats above his outfield spot, instructing fans to use
it to buy bacon or beer.

They now love Francoeur and cheer him at every chance. On
Tuesday, fans wore "Bacon Tuesday" shirts, and there's a large
piece of paper bacon hanging from the railing.

They'll have to enjoy the pizza while they can. This marks the
Royals' lone Bay Area trip this year.
