The Kansas City Royals won the World Series last night in a dramatic comeback victory over the New York Mets… And baseball think Fetty Wap had something to do with it.
It's important to understand how much this team loves Fetty. Back in August, we told you all about how Royals players were getting deep into Fetty-Mania by using the number 17 and 38 in interviews, a reference to the "Trap Queen" star's Remy Boyz 1738 crew. They got so serious, in fact, they reportedly fined players who didn't do it.
Well, now it looks like that superstition paid off -- in a huge way. You see, there was an epic play during last night's game where the Royals' Eric Hosmer slid head-first (which is pretty badass) into home for the tying run. Here's how that looked:
But this is where the Fetty connection comes in again. According to MLB.com, that play came at about the 17:38:56 mark of the series. The Royals went on to win the game 7-2 to earn the title. Meanwhile, Fetty, a rapper from New Jersey, mind you, was getting some of the credit:
And it seems appropriate, then, that fans want to see Fetty at the championship parade.
See? Rappers make sports dreams come true.
