We’ve already counted down the top Kansas City Royals moments from the 2014 playoffs. Now, we look at the best from their 2015 World Series-winning run.

The finals grain of sand are about to reach the bottom half of the hourglass. The Kansas City Royals—as we know them—are about to change forever. Several members of the team that helped reach consecutive World Series are about to become free agents.

It’s had us reminiscing, especially since the team became officially eliminated from postseason contention, and there are a lot of great memories on which to reflect. We’ve already taken a trip down memory lane with a rundown of the thrilling 2014 postseason run. Now, it’s time we did the same for 2015.

As with 2014, there were plenty of moments that could have been chosen. We could have made this a top-25 list, and there still would have been several near-misses that warranted inclusion. That’s what happens when a franchise wins its first world championship in a generation.

This is a post that you might find yourself coming back to at different points in the coming seasons. It’s a lot easier to go through a rebuild when you have such fresh memories to cherish. Those will get you through a lot of tough times.

At this point, we don’t know who will return to the Kansas City Royals for 2018. There is a lot still up in the air, but it’s safe to say things won’t be the same for a while. Yeah, let’s just dive right in before we start crying.
