Success Eludes Hillman While With Royals
Kansas City, Mo. – Trey Hillman's stint as manager of the Kansas City Royals was shy of three full seasons. His firing was announced after the Royals victory over the Cleveland Indians Thursday afternoon at Kauffman Stadium. It was the hope of the Royals' front office that Hillman's success overseas would carry over to the big leagues in Kansas City. But it never materialized.
