Royalman Report 1/22/12: Past, Present and Future


Back: Mike Engel, Troy Olsen, Chris Kamler; Front: Brett, J.P. aka Lil Frenchy

On the latest Royalman Report, we mixed a bit of past, present and future.

Past because we talked with Jeff Logan about Kansas City baseball history and upcoming events for the Kansas City Baseball Historical Society. If you’re a fan of the old KC A’s or other old teams, you’ll want to hear his segment. He also shared with us the fact that George Toma doesn’t stop moving (probably why he’s going into the baseball Hall of Fame).

Present because we talked about who might be the face of the Royals franchise, as well as expectations for the team going into next year.

Future because we put a couple of youngsters into the show’s spotlight, as 7-year-old J.P. (“Little Frenchy“) gave an interview with 9-year-old Brett. Baseball really is a kid’s game, after all.

Additonally, Alan Barrington joined me for a new segment called “Holding Court with Kings of Kauffman” and discussed his recent article on the Royals crop of young pitchers.
