Second baseman Omar Infante was part of two American League championship teams in Kansas City, and he got a World Series ring after the Royals won it all a year ago.
Infante’s offensive production declined after his first season with the Royals in 2014, and there were calls for the team to cut ties with him.
On Tuesday, Infante returned the favor, posting a thank-you note to Royals fans on Instagram.
