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, previews the season and the team’s quest to get back to the top. Episodes explore how the Royals’ championship core grew up together in the minor leagues and transitioned to the majors, the challenges manager Ned Yost faces, the winning culture created by Dayton Moore and the players' desire to win another title.
Here’s the trailer for the series and each episode.
