Dec 21, 2015

Building up to the 2014 World Series, the Kansas City Royals were in third place in the American League Central, eight games out of first place with a losing record. But that was just the beginning. What followed was an amazing run toward their first World Series showing since 1985 and everyone's attention nationwide was on the 2014 Kansas City Royals. The team, led by manager Ned Yost, stepped up to the plate and captured a spot in the AL Wild Card game. Sharp and vibrant pictures stand out and bring Out of the Blue to life. Matt Fulks captures the true color of the Royals, and takes us through the amazing journey of the team's off-season preparation and the exciting accomplishment of the Wild Card win from which they persevered all the way to game seven of the 2014 World Series.

Fulks showcases the team, individual players and their incredible plays such as the famous run saving defense plays by Lorenzo Cain, Alex Gordon and so many other amazing players. This is a great review of a winning season and a look forward to another amazing season for the Royals.
