The boo birds came out for some participants in the Taco Bell Legends & Celebrity Softball Game at Kauffman Stadium during All-Star Sunday.
University of Kansas coach Bill Self wore the No. 8 to honor his 2008 national championship team. He wished he could have worn a No. 12, but Kentucky stomped that dream.
But if he ever dreamed of hitting a home run at Kauffman Stadium he can now cross that off his bucket list.
Self drew both cheers and jeers. But the boos from the haters were drowned out by the cheers when he went yard. Self said getting hugs from the celebrity models was nice, but the highlight was his home run.
"The highlight of the whole game was me going deep," he said.
Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel drew boos during his introduction and polite applause during his at-bats.
Former Royals player Mike Sweeney and former American Idol winner David Cook, a native of Blue Springs, also hit home runs.
Cook said he had a lot of fun.
"I hope I get to do it again some time," Cook said.
Former Royals and football great Bo Jackson was their coach. He drew the biggest applause as his players and the fans coaxed him out onto the field.
Unfortunately, he hit a pop-up out.
