The Cleveland Indians are 13.5 games out of first place in their division, mired in a season where they're struggling to stay above .500 with just 19 games left.

So perhaps we shouldn't be too hard on one of the team's employees for zoning out in the top of the fifth inning of Tuesday night's contest against the Royals, and then smacking the fireworks button after he saw the opposing team hit a ball that went sailing into the left field stands. 

For what it's worth, the gentleman was absolutely mortified after making what was certainly an embarrassing mistake.
