How Did The Kansas City Royals Get Their Name?
How about those Royals? It's World Series time.
The team out of Kansas City takes on the Giants from San Francisco. Game 1 is Tuesday night in K.C.
By the way, one of my favorite towns to visit is Kansas City. It really is a wonderful town.
I'm pulling for the Royals. Hey, they're from the mid west and it's been 29 years since they've been in the seriies.
So how did the team get their name?
The "Royals" name originates from the American Royal, a livestock show, horse show, rodeo, and championship barbeque competition held annually in Kansas City since 1899.
Now you know. So, Go Royals!
