February 20, 2013. What seemed like just another Spring Training day to many will be remembered as the day the Kansas City Royals clinched a playoff berth.
On the day that manager Ned Yost lost a gallbladder, the Kansas City Royals gained a sense of destiny previously unknown to the team.
With another late inning come from behind win on Sunday afternoon, May 5th, against the Chicago White Sox, the team raised their record to 17 - 10. Outsiders are wondering how Yost is able to motivate his team to such unprecedented early season success. Insiders on the team point to that memorable late February day.
