The Royals thrilled Kansas City with a two-season run that culminated with the 2015 World Series championship. But last year’s 81-81 season, plagued by injuries, left fans wanting more. The 2017 season is likely the last that stars Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas and Lorenzo Cain will play together in KC. Can they reign again?
The Kansas City Star’s six-part video series, by David Eulitt with narration by Sam Mellinger, will preview the season and the team’s quest to get back to the top. Episode one was released February 22 and new episodes will air every Wednesday, ending on March 29.
Episode two explores how the Royals’ championship core grew up together in the minor leagues. Episode three looks at the transition those core players made in major leagues, culminating with a championship.
Episode four focuses on manager Ned Yost and episode five looks at the winning culture created by Dayton Moore.
Here’s the trailer for the series and past episodes.
