Many KC Royals fans are looking to fill their time while staying at home without baseball and the team is providing some instruction to help.

It’s a strange time for fans of the KC Royals. Life without baseball is one thing, but add spending a majority of time at home and life is sure to get stale rather quickly. There are plenty of things to do that can fill time around the house, but after so many days, it’s likely many want something new to fill their time.

Luckily, in many places, going outside is still an option. While time may have to be limited and social distancing must still be observed. Playing a game of catch or baseball with the family could still be an option for many.

Now, the Royals are looking to help fill a bit of the void and answer some questions for baseball lovers, especially those young Royals fans who may hope to one day wear the blue uniforms in Kansas City.

Yesterday, the KC Royals shared a video of Manager Mike Matheny introducing a new video series the organization is putting together, Big League Basics. The videos will be geared toward providing instruction and basics about baseball in all areas of the game and will be presented by coaches and members around the organization.

While some of the information provided may seem to be elementary and geared toward younger players, the instruction provided will be the same that is given to players in both the major and minor leagues.

The videos that are to come will be a perfect way for baseball players of any age to learn from professional coaches. Some of them may really help younger players and high school players who are unfortunately missing out on their season at the moment.

Luckily for Royals fans, episode 2 of Big League Basics was already shared and it is taught by beloved fan favorite, Rusty Kuntz. Rusty goes through a quick and easy, but important change that players can make with their glove when switching between the infield and outfield.

While time may seem to be moving extra slow and things are starting to get boring, the Royals are doing their part to bring some entertainment and instruction to everyday life. Whether a baseball player or just a fan, getting outside and throwing around the ball might be just what one needs to keep spirits up and get a break from the slow moving days.
