Alex Gordon has called Kansas City home for every season he's been in the MLB, and it looks like the 32-year-old may spend the rest of his career here.

Gordon, a four-time Gold Glove recipient, has signed to a four-year, $72 million contract with the Royals.

Gordon helped the Royals win the World Series in 2015 as a left fielder and with crucial at bats, including a solo home run that led to a 1-0 series lead versus the New York Mets.

When the Royals will face off against the Mets in their 2016 home opener on April 3, Alex Gordon will once again don a Kansas City uniform and his fans are very excited. Here's what they had to say Wednesday as "Alex Gordon" trended on Twitter with over 20,000 tweets.
