The streets in Kansas City were filled today to celebrate the Royals winning their first World Series Championship in 30 years. Instead of simply enjoying their current achievements, starting pitcher Edinson Volquez predicted they would repeat next season because, in his words, they are “the best team in baseball.”
The Royals left no doubt they were the best team in baseball this past season. However, there are no guarantees in the future.
Most championship teams fail to win it all again the following year. It’s rare a team can repeat, yet these Royals seem to be up to the challenge (although with free agency looming and the team poised to lose the likes of Johnny Cueto and Ben Zobrist, to name a few, there are never any guarantees).
We are excited that we will be able to see the Royals on each of our tours next summer. We will see the Royals host the Detroit Tigers in June on Tour #1. On Tour #2, we will see those same teams play again in August, except this time the game will be in Motown.
Now that the 2015 baseball season is in the rearview mirror, many fans will begin turning their attention to the 2016 campaign. In fact, many have already started looking forward to next year because, at this time, both of our tours scheduled for next summer are over half sold out.
If you would like to join us on either tour, please feel free to contact us with any questions.
