Hunter Pence is not in Kansas anymore.

The outfielder for the San Francisco Giants says he didn't realize the Kansas City Royals were based in Missouri until he saw a Royals fan's sign that read: "Hunter Spence thinks he's in Kansas."

"We're not?" Pence thought to himself, he tells Yahoo Sports.

Granted, there is a Kansas City in Kansas, but it's still hard to imagine that a grown man doesn't at least know the geographic locations of the cities where he works.

But who knew the meme would pay off so well when Pence realized (at least) one of the signs is right about him?
