Nick Castellanos interrupts eulogy with home run, Internet shocked it happened again
When announcer Ryan Lefebvre was eulogizing someone during a live broadcast on Monday, July 5, Red Sox's third baseman Nick Castellanos hit a home run at that very moment, disrupting the on-air memorial.
When Royals’ TV announcer Lefebvre was discussing the death of George Gorman, 96, the father of a longtime Royals staffer, the Reds outfielder hit a home run. “That’s a great life, 96 years. Pat (the Royals employee), just like his dad, went to KU, also went to Bishop Ward high school. There’s a drive into deep left-center field. There’s never a great time to eulogize someone during the broadcast, so we apologize for the timing,” Lefebvre said as Red Sox star Castellanos hit a home run. “But our hearts go out to Pat, who has been just a tremendous loyal employee for the Royals for 26 years. And his wife Katie, as she lost her father in law, and their daughters Abby and Katie, who lost their grandfather. But they had him for 96 years. Sorry for your loss. Welp, Nicholas Castellanos was 0-for-2 with two strikeouts against Mike Minor curveballs his first time up, and that slider didn’t quite slide enough...17th on the year,” he added.

But this wasn't the first time when something like this happened. Last year in August, TV sportscaster Thom Brennaman’s apology for an anti-gay comment was similarly disrupted by Castellanos. Just when he was in the middle of his apology, Castellanos hit a home run. “I think of myself as a man of faith. There’s a drive into deep left field by Castellanos, it will be a home run. That will make it a 4-0 ballgame. I don’t know if I’ll be putting on this headset again,” the sportscaster said.
Sharing the video of the latest incident, one person tweeted, "Here is the Royals broadcast of the Nick Castellanos home run. They were eulogizing someone live on the air when it Nick went deep to left-center field. You can not make this stuff up. Credit to @hjodoyle for the tip." While another one said, "Nick Castellanos is a menace to society, you can’t change my mind. He only cares about dingers, and he will make you have to go from being serious to calling a moonshot in 3 seconds flat… save the seriousness for your teams batters."

Another person tweeted, "lol Castellanos does not give a single f**k about your broadcast flow." Taking in account what happened last year, one twitter user said, "So the guy who hit a hr during an apology last year, hit another HR during a Eulogy, prompting another apology." Sarah Spane said, "It happened again?!?! Nick Castellanos does not give A. F."
