Last year was arguably the best year for the Kansas City Royals in recent memory - 86 wins put the boys in blue above .500, but just short of the playoffs.

For this hour of Up to Date we take you out to the ballpark for the Royal’s home opener and Steve Kraske introduces you to some of the people who keep the team running.

Up To Date Royals
When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
As senior producer of Up To Date, I want our listeners to hear familiar and new voices that shine light on the issues and challenges facing the myriad communities KCUR serves, and to expose our audiences to the wonderful and the creative in the Kansas City area. Just as important to me is an obligation to mentor the next generation of producers to ensure that the important conversations continue. Reach me at alexanderdk@kcur.org.
