Royals Moving FanFest Downtown and Other Links

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Royals arrive at the conclusion that you like us! You really like us!

Well it only took a couple of years, but the Royals finally figured out that people in Kansas City actually like them, especially once they start winning. So the team announced it is beefing up FanFest and moving it from the Overland Park Convention Center to Bartle Hall in downtown Kansas City, which provides almost seven times the convention space.

Fanfest will be held January 31 and February 1 with tickets as low as $7.
