Denny Matthews's Tales from the Royals Dugout: A Collection of the Greatest Stories Ever Told
by Denny Matthews
Paperback from Sports Publishing
ISBN: 1596700394

George Brett, Amos Otis, Frank White, Hal McRae, Dan Quisenberry, Bret Saberhagen, Paul Splittorff - one mention of any of those names can bring about visions of great baseball, hard-nosed determination, and winning. However, one vision outweighs all others - the boys in blue, the Kansas City Royals. An American League expansion club in 1969, the Royals struggled during their early existence. It did not take long, however, before the team established itself as one of the most successful franchises in baseball. The Royals´ success culminated when they won the 1985 World Series.

Since 1969 the Kansas City Royals have developed many great players who have had a lot of fun on and off the field. Along the way they have also developed a winning tradition. Although the team has received the "small market" tag in recent years, the organization still boasts a proud heritage. In the updated softcover edition of Denny Matthews's Tales from the Royals Dugout, the team´s longtime radio broadcaster relives the club´s greatest moments and proud tradition. Fans are invited to sit back and enjoy never-before-told anecdotes, including tales from the team´s great rivalries with the New York Yankees and Oakland A´s, and the remarkable players who have helped form the legend of the Kansas City Royals.

Crowning the Kansas City Royals: Remembering the 1985 World Series Champs
Crowning the Kansas City Royals: Remembering the 1985 World Series Champs
by Jeff Spivak, Jeffrey Spivak
Hardcover from Sports Publishing LLC
ISBN: 1582618267

Dane Iorg stepped back into the batterÂ's box. "Look for the ball down," he told himself. Pitcher Todd Worrell of the St. Louis Cardinals wound up and released the pitch Â- low, at the thighs. Iorg whipped around his lumberjack-like arms. The bat met the ball. The bat broke. Radio announcer Denny Matthews suddenly raised his voice: "Little looping fly ball..." And with that, the Kansas City Royals were on the way to their one and only World Series championship. Crowning the Kansas City Royals: Remembering the 1985 World Series Champs revisits the greatest sporting event in Kansas City history, when the Royals rallied from a 3-1 deficit in games, their morbid luck finally turned and the cross-state rivalry between Kansas City and St. Louis was irreparably altered. Written in an engaging and absorbing story-telling style by Jeffrey Spivak of The Kansas City Star, it is the first book of its kind. It recounts how few expected the I-70 series clash to be much of a contest, least of all Cardinals fans. It journeys through the anguish and ecstasy of all seven World Series games, with tales of resiliency and redemption about such players as George Brett, Frank White, Willie Wilson, Bret Saberhagen, Buddy Biancalana, and Charlie Leibrandt. Crowning the Kansas City Royals: Remembering the 1985 World Series Champs also catches up with some of those players today, including World Series star Saberhagen, the light-hitting hero Biancalana, Royals icon Brett, and umpire Don Denkinger, whose infamous call in Game 6 swung the momentum in the Royals favor. Crowning the Kansas City Royals is a memorable retrospective of the "Miracle Royals" on their 20th anniversary.
