No matter how hard a person tries to maintain their composure in light of the fact that there is a screen protecting them from baseballs hit in their direction, it is always hilarious to see the reactions of folks when a foul ball comes screaming back from the plate and drills the screen in his [...]The post Young Royals fan behind screen has priceless reaction to screaming foul (GIF) appeared first on Sportress of Blogitude.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Frustrations are mounting for the Royals as the team dropped its seventh straight game overall, and its 10th straight at home, tying a club record it set in April 2012.
As Royals manager Ned Yost was finishing his postgame press conference following a dismal 4-1 loss to St. Louis, he was asked how he was going to hold his struggling offense accountable for another...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. Near the top of the frustration list for Kansas City Royals fans is the complete lack of power from the team's lineup over the last two years.
The Royals finished tied for last in 2012 in home runs with just 131, and perhaps not coincidentally, they were 12th in runs scored.
So, manager Ned Yost decided a switch in hitting philosophy was in order. Out went...
ON SECOND THOUGHT...
Your browser does not support iframes.There wasn't a lot to smile about for the Kansas City Royals this weekend. Namely, they were swept by the Los Angeles Angeles in their home park in a four-game series.However, this play by Royals catcher George Kottaras served as some comic relief in the midst of an otherwise disappointing weekend.The play came in the top of the fourth inning...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The one subject you don't want to bring up to Royals right-hander James Shields anymore is the one about run support.
In his last three starts, Shields has lost 3-1, 2-1 and 3-2, and in the start before that he pitched eight shutout innings only to watch the Royals lose 2-1 in extra innings.
And then there was that 1-0 loss on Opening Day to the White Sox...
And so it goes when a team is cemented in a funk: Instead of a new hero each night who secures a victory, there is virtually a new culprit instead who contributes heavily toward a defeat.
Wednesday night it was right-hander Aaron Crow, who entered the eighth inning with a somewhat comfortable 3-1 against St. Louis. But Crow spit back the lead quickly and thoroughly...
A very large swarm of bees thought they would take over the Kansas City Royals dugout on Sunday prior to the Royals match up against the Angels. The swarm came in force and was not going to leave the Kauffman Stadium dugout without some sort of a fight. After putting up a little argument with a local beekeeper, the bees moved on and the Royals players were tentatively allowed to...
For anyone that has ever sat behind home plate at a baseball game, a foul ball to the back of the screen can cause many to flinch despite the true lack of actual danger.
During Tuesday's Royals/Cardinals game, a foul ball hit by Royals outfielder David Lough caused one young child to freak the hell out:

Royals manager Ned Yost just wanted to say hey to his buddy and Chiefs coach Andy Reid when he was swarmed by Kansas City security.
The teams that drive me crazy are the ones that are in denial, performing poorly yet operating in their own little universe, acting as if only they know what is best.
The Orioles were like that for a long time. So were the Pirates. The Astros are like that now, but get the benefit of the doubt because they just started to rebuild.
The Royals have lost the benefit of the doubt....
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Carlos Beltran hit a two-run homer against his former team, rookie Tyler Lyons made another dazzling start and the St. Louis Cardinals beat Kansas City 4-1 on Tuesday night for the Royals' 10th consecutive home defeat.
The only two hits that Lyons allowed over seven innings were to Billy Butler -- a two-out RBI double in the first inning and a bloop...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- There could be an opportunity for Tyler Lyons to make a case for a permanent place in the St. Louis Cardinals' injury-plagued rotation.
Lyons had a solid debut in his last outing and will face a Kansas City Royals team that is one defeat shy of a franchise-record home losing streak entering Tuesday night's contest.
St. Louis (33-17) has lost Jaime...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Yadier Molina homered and drove in four runs to help the St. Louis Cardinals beat the slumping Kansas City Royals 6-3 on Monday.
Molina hit a two-run homer in the first, doubled home a run in the third and his sacrifice fly in the fourth scored Pete Kozma.
While the Cardinals own the best road record, 19-9, in the majors, the Royals dropped their ninth...
