This past season will go down in the annuls of Kansas City Royals history as one of the best ever. The Royals won 95 games, the third highest total in franchise history. After falling agonizingly short last season, the Royals proved their heart and tenaciousness all postseason, using a multitude of improbable comebacks to win their second World Series title.

The Royals currently appear to be on the precipice of their second Golden Age, but are currently at a crossroads. With quite a few openings on the roster due to free agency, how Dayton Moore will fill those openings will go a long way to determining whether or not this new era of prosperity will continue over the next few seasons.

However, today, we are not looking ahead tothe Royals future. Instead, we are looking back over the past 46 years of Kansas City Royals history, as we look at what the all time Royals 25 man roster would look like. The Royals may not have had the star power of some other teams, but there has been quite a lot of talent to come through Kauffman Stadium over the years.

For the purposes of this exercise, there will be the eight starting spots on the diamond and a five man bench, consisting of two outfielders, two infielders and a reserve catcher. The pitching staff will be comprised of a five man rotation and a seven man bullpen. As for the designated hitter, well, any of the bench players could fill that role admirably.

And so, let us take a look back through the Royals past and present, as we put together the all time 25 man roster for the Kansas City Royals. As always, let us know if there is anyone that you felt should have made the roster.
