Examples of Royal Memories: “On October 5, 1985, my college roommate and I were in then Royals Stadium to watch the Royals battle the Oakland A’s. Willie Wilson’s 10th inning hit drove home Pat Sheridan and gave the Royals the 5-4 victory and the AL Western Division title, the first step to the World Championship!”
“My favorite Royals moment is from when I was a little girl. My grandpa used to take me out to the ballpark every Sunday the Royals were in town, and we used to watch them play. Every time I smell peanuts and popcorn, I think of those times at Royals Stadium with him and smile.”
“One memory that will always stand out to me is “The Throw” from Bo Jackson. I was watching with my dad and we thought that after Reynolds hit that ball the game was over, but that throw was able to keep the game tied and the Royals won it in 13. A game I’ll never forget.”
