We are in Kansas City for the start of the 2014 World Series, featuring the San Francisco Giants representing the National League and the Kansas City Royals representing the American League. It becomes a thrilling activity as Major League Baseball celebrates its greatest event of the year, 4 to 7 games played over two weeks in October. There are galas and parties throughout this Midwestern city getting ready for the first pitch to start the series.
In San Francisco several radio stations have banned the Lorde song “Royals” from being played on the air, but here in KC everyone is playing it.
The Giants and Royals will lead off with their best post-season pitchers: Madison Bumgarner for the Giants and James Shields for the Royals. Two teams that got to the World Series with small ball, both managers have said they would love to see their teams produce some homeruns.
They will now battle it out to see who has the better game.
