Here is Royals announcer Rex Hudler trying to argue the moon is a planet

Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

Rex Hudler answers Harry Caray's age-old question of "WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PLANET" with "the moon," which is a moon, not a planet.

There was a gorgeous full moon over Kansas City Tuesday night, prompting the Royals broadcast unit to show it during the broadcast, prompting the play-by-play announcer  to make a witty aside about how, as baseball broadcasters, they were obligated to show the full moon.

This was met by color commentator Rex Hudler ... thinking the moon was a planet?

"I like that rule! It's a beautiful planet!"

"Well, it's it's a moon ..."

"Well, it looks like a planet to me!"

Of course, planets revolve around stars and moons revolve around other planets. The moon revolves around the earth, so it is a moon. (You can also tell it is a moon and not a planet because we call it "the moon."

Of course, Hudler is only the latest in a long line of baseball commentators to be befuddled by the nature of the solar system:

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PLANET?!?!?! MINE'S THE SUN. ALWAYS HAS BEEN. I LIKE IT BECAUSE MINE'S THE SUN. IT'S LIKE, KING OF PLANETS.

No word on whether Hudler would eat the moon if it were made of spare ribs.

It's also not the first crazy thing Rex Hudler has said of late:
