Emil BrownIt wasn't reminiscent of Gene Autry days of the California Angels, where players had real guns in their lockers, but it was, none the less, dangerous.

The Kansas City Royals have announced that pellet guns will no longer be allowed in the clubhouse after a sports reporter was hit close to the eye by a red plastic pellet fired from a toy gun of outfielder Emil Brown. As reported by the Kansas City Star:

My understanding is that any such pellet guns will no longer be allowed in the clubhouse,” Royals vice president of communications Mike Swanson said Monday. “That’s been taken care of.”

Channel 9’s response?

“I would certainly hope so,” Channel 9 general manager Wayne Godsey said. “Pretty much the last place you’d expect someone to get injured in that fashion would be a (clubhouse).”

Channel 9's sports reporter Karen Kornacki was struck below the left eye during the incident. and Brown apologized. Kornacki did not require medical attention.
