"I almost got arrested for taking a peek at the Chiefs doing their minicamp. They surrounded me with security," Royals manager Ned Yost joked to reporters Tuesday, via The Kansas City Star.

It turns out that Yost wanted to say hello to Chiefs coach Andy Reid and welcome him to the city.

"I stopped to see what was going on, and, boom, here came the security," Yost said. "... They were fine once they figured out who I was."

To be clear: Yost, who has had jogging misadventures before, found the entire incident amusing. We find it telling: NFL security does not mess around. The contents of offseason practice often are treated like state secrets.
