Indians Mistakenly Set Off Fireworks for Home Run Hit by Royals' Alex Rios

Shooting off fireworks for a home run is pretty common—when the dinger is hit by the home team.

Fireworks for a visiting player? Not so much. 

Well, that happened at Progressive Field on Tuesday night. And the fans didn't like it one bit.

In the top of the fifth inning, Kansas City Royals right fielder Alex Rios crushed a solo shot to left field. The home run alone drew boos from the home crowd. But those boos grew louder when fireworks started to go off as Rios rounded the bases.

You had one job, fireworks guy!

Once the guy setting off the fireworks realized what he had done, he couldn't help but be upset with himself. It's not like Rios is a former Indian or something. The worker just had a lapse in concentration.

Rios' homer gave the Royals a 2-0 lead.
