The Christmas shopping is all finished?

You’ve already watched “It’s A Wonderful Life” and “A Christmas Story” and “Christmas Vacation?” And you’re sick of the snow and cold?
Why not watch some Royals baseball? Fox Sports Kansas City will re-broadcast four games from this past season on Christmas Eve, starting at 2 p.m. with the game in St. Louis on May 31/June 1.
That game ended at 3:14 a.m., but worry not, you won’t have to sit through the rain delay as each of the four games will be condensed into two hours apiece. (But here’s hoping we get another look at that crack Cardinals ground crew).
Here are the other games:
4 p.m.: Braves at Royals from June 26. Alex Gordon’s bookend game. He started with a homer in the first and won it with an RBI single in the 10th inning.
6 p.m.: Orioles at Royals from July 24. Eric Hosmer’s two-run home run tied the game in the eighth inning and Alcides Escobar won the game in the ninth with a double.
8 p.m.: Rangers at Royals from Sept. 22. Justin Maxwell’s walk-off grand slam won it in the Royals’ home finale.
