The Royals kick off their post-season play tonight against the Houston Astros in the American League Divisional Series. Kansas City will seek to defend their American League crown, and myself and 38,000 of my closest friends will be in attendance to watch the game. The parking lot will open at 1:30 with gates opening at 4:30 with first pitch at 6:37. Ben Zobrist's wife, Christian pop singer Julianna Zobrist, will be performing the National Anthem. If you're interested in meeting up before the game, check this thread for updates.
