Celebrating A Remarkable Royals Season

Frank Morris

The month of October has been a rollercoaster ride for Kansas City. The Royals made it through an amazing postseason, all the way to Game 7 of the World Series. We may have lost that final game to the San Francisco Giants 2-3, but our boys in blue gave this city an unbelievable and unforgettable postseason. Kansas City celebrated the remarkable accomplishments of our Royals at Kauffman Stadium today. On this edition of Up to Date, we bring you part of the festivities at the K including a chat with Mayor Sly James. 


  • Frank Morris is a reporter for KCUR.
  • Victor Wishna is a regular contributor to Up to Date with his feature, A Fan's Notes. He was at the K for Game 7. 
  • Mayor Sly James is the Mayor of Kansas City, Missouri. 


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.
