The Kansas City Royals ended a 29-year playoff drought with a thrilling run to the 2014 World Series. Here’s our countdown of the top moments from the 2014 postseason.

With the core of the Kansas City Royals getting ready to hit free agency, we think it’s a good time to reflect on their achievements. That starts with the 2014 postseason run.

It started with the American League Wild Card Game and ended in Game 7 of the World Series. The entire stretch was filled with exhilarating moments. We’ve decided to try to narrow all those into a top-10 list.

Some of these are singular plays that got us out of our seats, others are a string of plays that captivated us all, and still others are moments of sheer joy that we all experienced. But they all have one thing in common: We will never forget them.

But they all have one thing in common: We will never forget them.

They are the moments we will lean on when the, well, lean years ahead are here. Nobody knows when the next great Kansas City Royals era will come. Heck, there was a nearly 30-year gap between this one and the previous one.

That’s one reason we need to cherish these memories from 2014. And soon we will relive the moments from the 2015 playoff run, as well. If you think we’ve missed some of the best moments—or maybe just didn’t order them correctly—be sure to let us know.

Now, we’ll dive right in. This is your official goosebumps warning. Also, be sure to grab some tissues.
