Kansas City Royals Details
The Royals joined the American League as an expansion team in 1969. It didn’t take long for Kansas City to compete with the best MLB teams: they reached the playoffs in seven seasons between 1976 and 1985 – including six American League West titles – and won the World Series for the first time in 1985. But this first World Series also marked the beginning of a long playoff drought.
The Royals joined the AL Central division when the American League realigned in 1994. They did not reach the postseason again until the 2014 season. The 28 years that passed between playoff appearances is the second longest in the Wild Card era.
It was a long time to wait, but the Royals rewarded their fans for sticking with them. After qualifying for the playoffs in 2014, the Royals won their first 8 playoff games — they were the first MLB team to do so — and won the AL Pennant. They lost the World Series to the Giants in seven games but rebounded in the next season. The 2015 Royals won the AL Central for the first time and returned to the World Series, where they faced the New York Mets. The Royals defeated the Mets in five games, including a dramatic 14-inning Game 1 victory (the game tied for the longest game by innings in World Series history and lasted over five hours). Alex Gordon tied the game with a solo, two-out home run in the 9th inning, and the Royals won the game off a sacrifice fly in the 14th inning. Catcher Salvador Perez was the World Series MVP.
