About this title


Dane Iorg stepped back into the batter's box. "Look for the ball down," he told himself. Pitcher Todd Worrell of the St. Louis Cardinals wound up and released the pitch ? 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.
