Sporcle Friday: Royals who played for Cleveland

They were sent to the “Mistake on the Lake”


The Indians and Royals are the last three American League pennant winners, showing the strength of the Central Division.

Below is a list of 25 players who played for both the Royals and Indians. The years listed are their time in Kansas City. Some of these players were Hall of Famers and All-Stars. Some were forgettable. But you should recognize many of the names on this list if you’ve been a pretty serious Royals fan. How many former Indians and Royals can you name?
