Conversations about professional sports in Kansas City usually revolve around the Kansas City Chiefs. With the 1985 World Series Championship a distant memory, and multiple years of futility since, the Kansas City Royals are generally an after thought. Until this year, that is. By June 20, the club was back at home, just two days removed from a ten-game winning streak. They faced the Seattle Mariners in front of a sold-out crowd that included more than 550 Clevelanders.
