Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) October 08, 2014
For the first time since winning the 1985 World Series, the Kansas City Royals have qualified for the Major League Baseball postseason. Not only did the team earn a Wild Card spot, they beat one of the best teams in the league in extra innings before knocking off arguably the best team in baseball in the Oakland Athletics and Los Angeles Angels. Now the Royals are just four more wins away from advancing to the World Series where they would take on the National League representative.
Between their World Series title and now, the Royals have had just eight seasons with a winning percentage greater than .500. During that time, the team had four seasons where they lost at least 100 games and even in 2013, finished with a 72-90 record. They rebounded in 2014 by going 89-73 and finishing just one game behind the Detroit Tigers for first place in the AL Central Division. The team was able to find all their success this season behind the clutch hitting of Alex Gordon, Alcides Escobar, Billy Butler, and Norichika Aoki.
Their pitching staff also exceeded expectations during the regular season, led by the trio of James Shields, Jason Vargas, and Yordano Ventura. The trio went a combined 39-28 and Jeremy Guthrie was also successful, going 13-11. The rotation that the World Series could see if the Royals get past the Orioles won’t be the most talent-rich in the history of the sport, but they proved they could shut down a high-power offense when they swept the Angels.
If the Royals can reach the World Series, Kauffman Stadium will be packed to the rafters with fans that have been waiting for decades to be excited about baseball again. Kauffman Stadium originally opened in 1973 and had a major renovation that concluded in 2009. The venue can seat close to 40,000 fans on any given day and will be the home to more fans when standing room only tickets are opened up to the public for the World Series.
