Ah, Kansas City!

Here. My son linked to this article on my Facebook timeline.

The year 1993, cited in the article as the point at which things went south for the Royals, due to the death of Mr. Kauffman and the ensuing "fire sale" of young talent, was when I saw my only game in Kansas City.

A colleague of mine and I were attendi
ng a church convention and a friend of his gave him two box seat tickets on the first base side. George Brett was in his last season and, as often happens for great players at the ends of the MLB careers, he was playing first base. 

I'm really happy for the Royals and for Kansas City, a town I've enjoyed whenever I've visited.
