Kansas City Royals Schedule – multiple World Series winners
Winners of the World Series title in both 1985 and 2015, the Kansas City Royals are one of the Major League Baseball’s most successful expansions teams. You can both buy and sell Kansas City Royals schedule tickets on StubHub.
The Boys in Blue
Named after the rodeo, horse and livestock show known as the American Royal, the Kansas City Royals were formed in 1969 as an expansion team following the relocation of the Athletics to Oakland the previous year. Joining the Major League Baseball at the same time as the Seattle Pilots, the Royals quickly established their dominance in the American League Central division, reaching the playoffs on no fewer than seven occasions from the mid-1970s until the mid-1980s. Guided by the likes of Hal McRae, Frank White, Amos Otis and Willie Wilson, the team also won their first World Series title against their number one rivals the St. Louis Cardinals in 1985 and 30 years later, repeated the feat when they defeated the New York Mets by an emphatic four games to one. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to see the team nicknamed both the Boys in Blue and the Blue Crew in action and check out the range of Kansas City Royals schedule tickets now on offer at StubHub.
The electric Kauffman Stadium
After spending their first three years in existence at the Municipal Stadium, the Kansas City Royals then moved to their long-running home of the Kauffman Stadium in 1972. Named after their local businessman founder Ewing Kauffman, the 38,000-capacity venue has also hosted several All-Star games and concerts by the likes of Van Halen, REO Speedwagon, Billy Joel and Fleetwood Mac over the years. The stadium is undoubtedly at its most electric when the Royals take on arch-rivals the St. Louis Cardinals, although lion mascot Sluggerr and the various crowd traditions ensure that there’s always an incredible atmosphere when Major League Baseball comes to town. Hall of Famers to have pulled on the famous white and royal blue colours since the Royals’ formation include George Brett, Gaylord Perry, Joe Gordon and Bob Lemon, while Whitey Herzog, Dick Howser and Ned Yost stand among their most successful managers.
