Kansas City Royals may have come out of the blue with their success in
2014, the 2015 edition of the team had high expectations and they met
them to the fullest degree in winning the 2015 World Series — the
organization's first in three decades.
|Buoyed by a dominant
regular season in which they held first place in the American League
Central beginning on June 8 and never looked back. Anchored by a major
league record seven All-Stars and boosted by the mid-season
acquisitions of Ben Zobrist and Johnny Cueto, this historic team would
not be denied on their way to the title.
Packed with unique analysis from veteran Kansas City writer Matt Fulks
and vivid color photography, Taking the Crown
guides fans through the Royals’ amazing journey, from key
off-season acquisitions to the Royals’ thrilling come-from-behind
ALDS win versus the Astros, from their out-slugging of the powerful
Blue Jays in the ALCS, all the way through their incredible World
Series triumph over the Mets.
This commemorative edition also includes feature stories on
Royals’ stars Lorenzo Cain, Eric Hosmer, and other fan favorites,
and is a must-have keepsake for Royals fans for generations to come.
