The idea seems preposterous these days. A player builds a Hall of Fame career and never leaves his original, small-market team. In other words, a George Brett career. When Brett stepped down as the Royals interim hitting coach last week, he addressed the notion of longevity and loyalty to a franchise with a question. Where was I going to go?
When George Brett incurred some nuisance back problems in the late stages of his career with the Royals, he sought relief from a chiropractor in Overland Park. It turned out to be the man whose job Brett took in 1973. Paul Schaal laughs as he remembers what he said back then: You took my job from me at third base, remember that? Heres what Im going to do to get even.
Former major-leaguer Dan Plesac is part of the MLB Networks 30 Clubs in 30 Days program that will feature the Royals on Tuesday. Ive been on the Royals bandwagon for a couple of seasons, Plesac said. I thought 2013 was really the beginning of them being legitimate.
After taking a foul ball of his left palm, Royals catcher Salvador Perez left Monday’s game against the Mariners. The initial X-rays were encouraging, a team spokesman said. But Perez was scheduled to get more tests. The initial diagnosis is a contusion.
