This one was quite simple and to the point.
Well, if the Kansas City Royals do manage to win the World Series this year, as we all certainly hope, it would make sense that they would follow the same route as they had planned on using last year. While nothing was confirmed, that route was expected to run down Grand Boulevard between the Sprint Center and the Crown Center.
Why not use that same route? It would take the Royals through the heart of downtown Kansas City, giving the fanbase the perfect place to stand and cheer as the World Series Champion Kansas City Royals (that has an amazing sound to it) ride in triumph. It would certainly be a sight to behold!
Hopefully, this is a conversation that we can come to again during the month of October. The Royals, despite whatever the pundits may think, have to be considered as a contender for the playoffs at this point. They are still a stellar defensive team, and the pitching staff, particularly the bullpen, appears to be just as solid as in 2014. Let’s hope that this parade route is used this season, and the Royals will hoist another World Series banner on Opening Day in 2016!
