Royal Baseball With Kansas City Royals Tickets

By: Al Terry

Baseball fans can really experience a royal baseball treat with Royals tickets. Despite their name, the Kansas City Royals are often seen as the underdogs in major league baseball, particularly following their recent slump. However, like true underdogs, the Royals have always put up a great game and baseball observers have noted that the Royals seem poised for a big comeback this year.

The Kansas City Royals are part of the Central Division and the American League, within Major League baseball. They play out of Kauffman Stadium when they are at home and are known as The Boys in Blue. So far, they have one World Series title to their name as well as two American League pennants.

The New Kid On The Block

Compared to other baseball teams that have been around since the 1800s, the Royals are relative newcomers, hitting the field for the first time in 1969. However, the Royals were able to make a hard-hitting impact early on, scoring a win in their first official game and maintaining a good edge from then on. Game attendance rose as more fans bought Royals tickets and came to see the games.

By the early eighties, the Royals were doing pretty well for themselves. In 1984, the team was involved in what is known as the Pine Tar Incident. George Brett had just smashed a home run when the umpire noticed a heavy amount of pine tar on Brett's bat. The home run was disallowed, Brett stormed off and a piece of baseball folklore was born.

Hitting High And Hitting Low

The infamous Pine Tar Incident also did not stop fans from purchasing their Royals tickets and they weren't disappointed. The Royals pulled off a splendid World Series win in 1985, crowning themselves as the true kings of the field. For many, this would prove to be the high point, after which the Royals would keep playing a steady game without doing anything remarkable. And as is natural, the Royals began to hit a slump in 1995.

Many factors contributed to this slump. Not only did the Royals lose their manager and owner in quick succession, the team also got their payrolls pinched. All this combined to lower the team's morale and by 2006, the Royals were at the very bottom of the pile. By 2007, efforts were made to shake the team up and as a result, the current line up appears to be one of the most aggressive so far. With a new motto and a new look, the Royals are ready to win back their crown.

Due to the fact that the Kansas City Royals are still relatively new as a team, they have not yet established any long-standing or fierce rivalries. However, Royals tickets are always a hot commodity because they have always had a good roster of players. In fact, despite its youth, the team has managed to add a few good names to the Baseball Hall of Fame, including George Brett, Gaylord Perry and Orlando Cepeda. Don't miss your chance to see some great baseball the next time the Kansas City Royals play close by. You can even buy your tickets online from an authorized ticket vendor.
