There won’t be a parade this year. The Royals season is over and they finished with an 81-81 record.
Last season, fans showered the players with love after the Royal won the World Series. On Sunday, some of the Royals players took time to thank the fans for their support this season. The Royals had their second-best season in terms of attendance, and that wasn’t lost on the players.
Here is what they said to the fans:

UPDATE: The Royals put together a nice video and said thanks to the fans as well. They shared it on Twitter:
