Things are ramping up in the world of baseball as the 2020 schedules have been announced for the KC Royals and the rest of the MLB.

KC Royals fans everywhere are likely getting more and more excited by the pictures and videos posted across the team’s social media. It looks like everyone is ready to play, and the players are working hard to get ready for what will be a strange season of baseball.

It seems as though every day, we should expect some news to break about the season, and whether it will be good or bad news is not always known. Yesterday, though, some great news was released.

The MLB released the 2020 schedule for all 30 teams so fans can finally see just how the season will look with only 60 games.

The Royals will see 30 games at home and 30 on the road. They will play 10 games each against their AL Central Rivals, the Twins, White Sox, Tigers, and Indians, and they will also see 20 games against the NL Central, the Cardinals, Cubs, Reds, Brewers, and Pirates. 6 of the NL Central games will be against the Cardinals with 2 series, one at home and one in St. Louis.

The Royals will start their games on day 2 of the season, July 24th against Cleveland. The first 6 games will all be on the road, starting in Cleveland and finishing in Detroit on July 30. Then, finally, on July 31, the Royals will see some action in Kansas City as they play their first home games of the season in a 3 game series against the Chicago White Sox.

All 60 games will be played in 66 days, with the season-ending on September 27th, a home game against Detroit for the Royals. It will be interesting to see how teams stack up without much of a break between a good portion of the needed travel this season.

With the limited schedule and days off, players will have to be very aware of their habits and safety protocols as well. Any issues that arise that could cause a player to miss even a short amount of time could set them back far in such a short season.

Still, fans can start to get more excited as things are looking to be on track for the 2020 season. It won’t be long before the boys are playing live games in Kansas City, and fans can see players like Mondesi making everything look too easy.

There is still some time before the season gets started but in just a few weeks, fans will be able to see some live baseball, and the Royals will be back in our everyday lives.
