The Kansas City Royals have 3 nationally televised games this week. Two have already happened, and one more is this Sunday night. Monday they played the Yankees and it was blacked out on my TV (I assume the regional broadcast was showing it too, but I don't get that channel where I'm at). Last night was another another game I missed because I don't get the channel. Luckily I have grown quite fond of the radio broadcast of the games, as it reminds me when I was a kid and I never got to see the Royals on TV period. I was able to hear an amazing call by Denny Matthews telling us "if this is your year, then this is where you do something, if it isn't your year, then you don't." Right after he said that Alex Gordon hit a two run walk-off home run to give Kansas City the win 2-1.
Usually after the games I will go to tunein.com and see if any of the minor league Royals teams are still playing, or sometimes listen to the San Jose Giants play (I've known Chuckie Jones my entire life and rooting for him to make it to the majors). Anyways, I will hear names I don't know and some sound familiar. Not because I have heard of them, but because I remember their dads when they played. That makes me feel old.
So I decided to show some players who currently play in the majors or the minors who you may have heard their names before. This isn't every player currently, just a few that I found. Thanks to Trading Card Database for all the cards I'm about to show.
First one I'll show is one everyone should know:
Like I said I know there are others, some I didn't mention because I don't remember their fathers play, or some I just didn't include because I can't mention everyone. Looking at the ones I did pick, I notice a lot of them have ties to the Dodgers. I guess that is cool, but if I was a Dodgers fan, I would likely be bound to put too much pressure on them to succeed.
That's it for tonight, thanks again to everyone who reads this, I am really loving writing this each day even if some of my posts are a little lite.
