It was a big weekend for All-Star announcements in Kansas City. Both the Kansas City Royals and Sporting KC had multiple players named to their respective league’s All-Star teams.
Outfielder Alex Gordon of the Kansas City Royals wasn’t on the American League team last year, but he was there when the cheers for his teammate Billy Butler drowned out the introduction.
“I don’t cry at all, but I actually cried when I saw Bill get announced and all the support he got,” says Gordon.
Gordon says playing with Butler for the past six years has been special.
