I loved working for the Royals last year. I was a fan photographer, taking pictures of the people that came to watch the Royals at Kauffman Stadium. I learned a lot about baseball. I learned a lot about Kauffman Stadium, and the Royals did VERY well. American league champions, and went to the World Series. Game 7 was a heartbreaker. They came so close, but in the end, lost.
I worked a few of the early games this year, but could not keep up with the schedule. It was great to follow the Royals, and see them doing VERY well again this year. It was amazing to watch them come from behind in game 4 to win the World Series.
Kansas City has the best sports fans in the country. The parade and celebration for the Royals in Kansas City attracted hundreds of thousands of people to the downtown area (I heard estimates from 400 to 600 thousand people). With all of those people, there was minimal reports of violence. The comments were about being a community. I am proud of the people of Kansas City.
Now, Gooo Chiefs!
