Today's story comes from Tracy and is all about how baseball helped her connect with her son.Read More
I needed a pick-me-up after last night’s awful, 1-0 loss to extend the Royals’ losing streak to 5 games. So I hopped on to my youtube channel and relived the following moments during the Royals magical 2 year run of 2014 and 2015. Enjoy!Read More
Just a quick update and reminder to share your Royals story!
It's been a while. When the Royals missed the playoffs last year, there wasn't much to write about, so I took some time off. Then I started a new job in January and am just now catching up.Read More
After 29 years of waiting, I was happy to be watching my team in the American League Division Series. That said, I wanted more. So as soon as ALDS Game 1 started, I switched into a more serious, “Let’s win the whole thing” mode. The Royals weren’t done yet, so I certainly wasn’t going to relax.Read More
A look back at the night that changed everything for the Royals, the city of Kansas City, and my family. The AL Wild Card Game vs the Oakland Athletics on September 30, 2014 at Kauffman Stadium.Read More
Our story begins with the birth of my youngest son, Jamisyn (Jamie), who was ALWAYS a fan, win or lose. Of course he never knew what a World Series win was like growing up, but he never lost hope. Day in, and day out he would play baseball, even if it was outside throwing it up to himself. I knew little boys enjoyed sports, but never as much as him. He would watch “tape” (still does) to see what went wrong or what went right. He was a very proud fanRead More
I wanted to share one of my favorite baseball experiences, which occurred a few years ago.
When Bud Selig announced that Kansas City would host the 2012 MLB All-Star Game, I was super excited. At the time, I was working on my PhD at the University of Iowa collecting data for my dissertation. I was also a research assistant for the Prevention Research Center for Rural Health, a position that luckily afforded me the opportunity to generally make my own work schedule.Read More
My Royals story is a simple one. My daughter fell in love with the Royals 2 years ago (she is almost twelve). I have always been a fan, but she went from a 1 to 1 million on the fandom scale. She now knows EVERY stat, every handshake, everything…Read More
It was about 95 degrees, no breeze, and the game was going poorly. After 7.5 innings, the Mariners’ James Paxton had thrown 57 pitches and the Royals trailed 3-0. I was sitting in section 103 at Kauffman Stadium contemplating whether or not I should leave, but I decided to stay in case the Royals offense woke up. They did, and scored 2 runs on a Paulo Orlando 2-out single, but they still trailed 3-2 going into the 9th.Read More
I've been going to Royals games since I was in either 4th or 5th grade. I remember the 1985 World Series win, so my best Royals story comes from sharing the 2015 World Series with my son. I was sitting at my desk one fall day when I get a text from my brother asking me if my son and I wanted to go to Game 2 of the World Series with him and his brother-in-law.Read More
I am a single mom and my boys are currently 5 and 7. Every year I try to take them to at least one game. Last year, my oldest was 6 and my youngest wasn't feeling well, so I made it a special thing for my 6 year old.Read More
