Like a lot of expansion teams, the Royals’ first five seasons were unremarkable. However from 1976 onwards, the team changed things around and made it to the playoffs seven times in the next ten years. This remarkable run included six division titles, an American League pennant and culminated in a World Series win in 1985.
However, the famous 1985 World Series win remains the highest point in the Royals’ history. Though the team remained competitive during the earlier part of the 90’s, they were unable to make it to the playoffs. From 1995 onwards, things took a turn for the worse as the team registered only one winning season between 1995 and 2012. As a result the Royals hold the unfortunate record of registering the longest ever postseason drought in the MLB.
2013 was a different story for the team, as new players like James Shields galvanized the team into posting their first winning season since 2003. This season, the Royals will be looking to build on last campaign’s success and take it one step further this year.
As the regular season gains steam, the Royals will be taking on some of the best teams in the MLB. To catch their home games live at the Kauffman Stadium, buy Kansas City Royals Kansas City tickets root for your favorite baseball team live.
