PHOTOS: True Blue Fans Gather At Power & Light District For Game 6

A blue wave of cheering fans gathered at Kansas City's Power & Light District Tuesday night to watch the Kansas City Royals beat the San Francisco Giants 10-0 in Game 6 of the World Series.

“I’m proud of them,” said Victor Stringer. “I’ve been following the Royals since the 1970s, I think we can take this whole thing. I just believe in them.”

Twelve-year-olds Jaydon Dickinson and Donte Smith played a game of catch before the start of the game.

“I am here because I’ve loved the Royals since I could understand what they were,” said Dickinson. "I obviously wasn’t here for the second time, but I am really glad to be here for the third. I hope we’re going to make it.”

“It just fills your body with excitement and after the games if we win, there is a lot of beer everywhere. And there is a lot of peanuts and stuff,” said Smith laughing.

Daniel Wade sipped beer with his brother Erik. The two dyed their beards royal blue for luck.

“It’s insane man,” Daniel said before the game. “You gotta think, it’s been 29 years since anything like this has happened and we are two games away from being the best team in baseball.”

Make that one game. The Royals take on the Giants in Game 7 Wednesday night.
