Royals owner David Glass believes his young team will be in contention by the All-Star break, despite starting 3-9 and failing to win a home game yet this season.
Glass said he has ''no concern'' that the Royals will turn things around. He spoke Thursday at a public appearance in Kansas City to promote the All-Star Game, which the Royals will host in July.
Kansas City took its opening series against the Angels before losing two of three to Oakland, and opened a 10-game homestand by getting swept by Cleveland and Detroit.
The Royals had Thursday off before starting a series against Toronto.
Even if the Royals are out of contention, baseball fans in Kansas City can still look forward to the Midsummer Classic. It will be the first All-Star Game the city has hosted since 1973.
