The 2016 Royals baseball season is in full swing, and once again I'm regularly decked out in my fan gear cheering on our boys in blue. It's been a season of ups and downs so far, but we are above .500 with our 43 wins and 39 losses (as of the writing of this blog). So, I'm pleased with our season so far. I've seen some great games and some not-so-great ones. I know it's tough to top last year's performance, but that doesn't mean I don't hope they can pull it off again come October.
While March Madness has given way to April Sadness for many of us in Kansas City, I’m pretty optimistic about the state of KC sports—mostly because we’ve arrived at baseball season and I get to watch the Royals. While it’s certainly easy to be a fan when your hometown team is the reigning world champion, baseball has long been my favorite sport. From the days of Mickey Mantle and Lou Gehrig, all the way to Hosmer’s slide in game five, baseball has a rich history of amazing moments, broken records and interesting characters.
