The Royals’ bandwagon continues to add passengers.

On Tuesday, Laurence Leavy publicly announced he was rooting for the Royals to get back to the World Series.

Laurence Leavy, aka "Marlins Man," describes how he came up with the idea for the Royals new hand signal.

You may know Leavy better as Marlins Man, the ubiquitous sports fan who has attended roughly 250 major sporting events this year (that may be a bit of an overstatement).

Marlins Man burst onto the scene a year ago thanks to the Royals. His spot behind home plate amid a sea of blue made him stand out big time.

Anyway, here’s what he tweeted on Tuesday:
