Greg Echlin http://kcur.org en Royals In The Play-offs? http://kcur.org/post/royals-play-offs <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">It's nearly September, and the Royals have won more games than they've lost. This might seem like a minor achievement, but here in Kansas City, this is a huge deal. We haven't had a winning season since 2003 and before that, 1994. &nbsp;An entire generation of baseball fans have not seen the Royals do well. To put this into perspective, Eric </span>Hosmer<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, the Royals' first baseman is 23 years old. He was born in 1989, a full 4 years after the Royals last made the play-offs (and went on to win the World Series).</span></p> Thu, 22 Aug 2013 16:52:50 +0000 Jeremy Bernfeld, Matthew Long-Middleton & Ross Stinemetz 42407 at http://kcur.org Royals In The Play-offs?
