Kansas City Royals Tickets

The Kansas City Royals are under the current management of Ned Yost, who took up the post in 2010, after the departure of Trey Hillman. Although Yost's career has come under criticism in previous managerial roles, a successful track record with the Royals has resulted in a contract extension which took place in early 2012. In 2013, Yost managed an 86-76 record with the Royals, with an overall team record of 198-253 under Yost's leadership.

The Kansas City Royals start the 2014 season with seven unsigned, arbitration eligible players remaining on their roster. These players include existing big names such as Aaron Crow and Eric Hosmer.

2013 was generally a very positive year for the Kansas City Royals, with four straight games being won in succession by April of that year. Success continued Kauffman Stadium Ticketsthroughout the year, with the Royals maintaining first place in the ALC, although they eventually tied with the Detroit Tigers, due to their respective defeat of Oakland Athletics. Despite this success, the impact of the Boston Bombing was never far from the minds of the players, a incident which occurred roughly an hour after a game in which the Royals faced the Rays. This meant that any games scheduled to take place after this were postponed and also meant that the league suffered a knock on effect.

There are many reasons to be positive about the chances of success for the Royals in 2014. The team displays a wide variety of strengths and weaknesses, all of which need to be explored and exploited. A largely successful run under the coaching management of Ned Yost is unlikely to change in the near future, although some are suggesting that he must make adjustments in time for the new season. Many feel that Yost should continue to evolve as a manager, in order for the team to evolve and reach it's full potential.

Kansas City Royals Tickets

The Kansas City Royals are one of those franchises that are deeply underappreciated. They do not have the pennant (2) or World Series totals (1) that particularly shines when compared to the rest of the MLB. Of course, the Royals are also one of the younger teams. They were added as part of the westward expansion of the league in the 1960s and the fans suffered through some difficult seasons, but the payoff was more than worth it.

From 1975 to 1985 the team never finished lower than second in the AL West and played in the postseason seven times. The Royals reached the World Series twice, winning one. These Kansas City teams enjoyed a roster with third baseman George Brett, second baseman Frank White, and an incredible starting rotation. Somehow the team ended up with Bud Black, Danny Jackson, David Cone, and Bret Saberhagen on the mound.

This collection of talent led to a 97-win summer in 1980 and a trip to the World Series, the franchise’s first. Unfortunately, though Kansas City was finally able to take down the Yankees in the ALCS (New York had beaten the club three times), they were not able to beat the Philadelphia Phillies. Five years later, the Royals won 91 games, Brett Saberhagen won the Cy Young Award, and KC beat the Cardinals in the I-70 Series.

In the years since, the Kansas City Royals struggled to produce the kind of offense that could take the baseball team back to the postseason. The team has, however, been able to develop great pitchers, such as Zack Greinke.

Never a big spender, the club has starting rebuilding through the farm system again. But, at least the team plays its home games at Kauffman Stadium, which remains one of the most exquisite venues in professional sports, even after the retro ballpark era.
