Publisher Comments:

The history of the Royals in Kansas City may not be a long one—the team first played in Kansas City in 1969—but it is a proud one. Embraced by a loyal fan base and boosted by small-market spunkiness, the team was a constant threat in the 1970s and 1980s, making multiple playoff appearances before beating the St. Louis Cardinals for the World Series in the “I-70 Series.” Now, this all-new guide explores all of the things every true fan should know about the Royals and what they should do to celebrate their favorite team. The listings are ranked in importance from one to 100, and feature such legendary players, places, and moments as George Brett, Kaufmann Stadium, Denny Matthews, Game 6 of the 1985 Series, Dick Howser, and a certain infamous, pine-tar-covered bat. Packed with personalities, places, events, and facts, this fun and informative book is the perfect tool for any fan looking to take his love for the Boys in Blue to a whole new level.
