This KC Royals outfielder may be well known for his defensive abilities, but now he has shown that he can entertain fans from behind the camera as well.
The days are continuing to pass without KC Royals baseball and life is becoming more and more dull. The past games being shown are a great recap, but they just aren’t the same as live games. For some fans, though, entertainment may have come through the MLB The Show 2020 players league.
A player from each MLB team took up the challenge and faced off against the player for teams around all of baseball, Brett Phillips taking the spot for the KC Royals. While it wasn’t “real” baseball, watching the players interact with each other while they play a “baseball game” still has a great deal of entertainment value.
In the end, Blake Snell beat out Lucas Giolito to take the championship, winning the first 3 games in a best of 5 series. Phillips was unable to make the cut for the finals, which consisted of the top 8 players, but he at least was able to hold a winning record.
Phillips ended at number 15, with a 15-14 record, not far off from the number 8 spot at 19-10.
Luckily for Phillips, he was able to come out on top in a different way. The MLB decided on some awards for the Players Leauge and gave honors, such as best player, best twitch name, and best manager. To decide who should receive these awards, both fan vote, and player vote were taken into account.
While it may come as no surprise to many Royals fans who have managed to catch an interview with Phillips, he was named the most entertaining streamer. While he didn’t receive the most fans votes, he did receive the most player votes, which accounted for a larger percentage.
If you weren’t able to catch any of the games streamed online to see just how entertaining Phillips could be, check out his dancing skills in this video:
Brett Phillips is a breath of fresh air at times as he can usually be found having a good laugh and keeping spirits alive with his hilarious laugh, or now his dancing abilities.
While it’s wasn’t real baseball, there was plenty of entertainment to be seen during the Players League as players were battling it out virtually to take the top spot. Now, we can only hope that something will be decided soon and that fans will finally get to see the Royals back in action.
