The Kansas City Royals get their name from the American Royal stock show, which has been held in Kansas City since 1899. They joined the American League in 1969 and found a permanent home with the Central Division in 1994. The Royals have only played in the World Series four times, winning the championship in 1985 and again in 2015. Between 1986 and 2013, Kansas City did not qualify for postseason. They broke their 28-season losing streak in 2014 with a wild card bid and have remained strong ever since.

Kansas City Royals News
If the Kansas City Royals want to qualify for a berth in the MLB playoffs, they’d better hope for some help and also get on a big winning streak. As of Sept. 8, the Royals were in third place in the AL Central, sporting a mark of 72-67, nine games out of first place.
Kansas City played well offensively against Minnesota Sept. 5 and 6. In two victories over the Twins, the Royals scored a combined 21 runs while allowing just eight. The Royals couldn’t complete the sweep, however, falling to the Twins 6-5 on Sept. 7.
The Royals will get a chance to pick up some much-needed wins with a four-game home series with Oakland, Sept. 12–15. Tickets to the first game start at $4.
Fans of the Kansas City Royals are no doubt starting to get nervous as the playoffs approach. Last year’s World Champions have looked less than sharp this week, especially in their most recent series against the New York Yankees. They lost the series 1 - 2, and those two losses were especially brutal at 4 - 5 each. The Royals are now 69 - 64 overall and third in the American League Central, which means they will really have to work to get back into postseason contention. Come show your support tomorrow when Kansas City hosts the Detroit Tigers. Tickets are on sale and available for purchase starting at $19.
Perhaps no team in baseball has been as hot as the Kansas City Royals this August. Despite falling at Miami 3-0 on Aug. 24, the Royals have had a stellar month, winning 15 of 21 games. The most recent loss snapped a nine-game winning streak. As of Aug. 24, the Royals were 65-61, good enough for third place in the AL Central. Defense has been the name of the game lately for Kansas City. The Royals posted a pair of shutouts last week and surrendered just one run in another game—a 2-1 nail biter over Minnesota on Aug. 21. Coming up next for Kansas City is a three-game homes series with the New York Yankees. Tickets to the first game start at $8.

The Kansas City Royals and fans in attendance at last night’s game against the Detroit Tigers are in absolute shock. The reigning World Champions looked like they were going to blow out the visiting team in the first inning after scoring two unanswered runs, but this was far from the case.

The Kansas City Royals have looked like anything except the defending 2015 World Champions they are in recent games. Although the two-series road trip isn’t making things any easier, Royals fans still expect them to take care of business. Kansas City has now lost their last three games in a row. The two most recent defeats came at the hands of the New York Yankees, who have an even less impressive record. They beat the Royals 10-7 last night at Yankee Stadium, following their 6-3 win on Monday. Kansas City has two more chances to avoid the sweep before returning home to face the Atlanta Braves on Friday. Tickets are $26 and up.
Just when the Kansas City Royals were starting to look like the reigning World Champions that they are, they go and lose to the Los Angeles Angels 1-6. The game got off to a rough start immediately, with the Angles blowing out the Royals in the first inning with three unanswered runs. It only got worse from there for Kansas City, who scored just one run in the fourth inning. This is only the first of three games in a road-trip against the Angels, which gives the Royals plenty of time for redemption. Their next home game is Monday, May 2 against the Washington Nationals. Tickets are $13 and up.
