On Tuesday, Eric Hosmer was the hero for the Kansas City Royals, who beat the New York Mets in the first game of the World Series.
He hit the game-winning home run to give the Royals a 5-4 win over the Mets. Eric has been flying high on and off the field — he is currently dating Kacie McDonnell, who is a sportscaster for NBC’s KSHB 41.

Before Kacie dated Eric, she was engaged to former Chiefs quarterback Aaron Murray, who is the younger brother of 'Bachelorette' contestant Josh Murray from Andi Dorfman's season.[Credit: Mike Zarrilli/Getty]
Kacie and Aaron called off their engagement in January, only a few months after Josh and Andi ended their own engagement. McDonnell told
the Philadelphia Inquirer, "I'm loving my career in Kansas City. I'm really committed to being a part of this community for the time being. The engagement is off. I wish him the best; it's best to part ways. I'm moving on with my life."
