As you may have heard, Twitter is discontinuing service for the Vine app, giving us three years of six-second videos. Luckily, the era of Vine was during one of the most exciting eras of Royals baseball. Terrific Twitter users like Steve MCCleary (@stevemcleary) and Jim McClintock (@pimpino) delighted Royals fans for years with Vines of exciting Royals plays (just don't tell Major League Baseball) and funny moments from the broadcast.
Here are some of the best Vines in Royals history.
Super fan Jimmy Faseler gained some notoriety when his belly dancing made the Royals broadcast. Well, someone set it to music.
Baseball to the groin! Baseball to the groin!
When it happens to Alex Rios, he didn't get any sympathy from teammates.
There was the time Ryan Lefebvre shut down an Orioles fan during the ALCS.
Remember when Torii Hunter went crazy?

Danny Duffy had many great moments in his bear suit, including his interview with Joel Goldberg after clinching a post-season spot for a second consecutive year. But for me, it is hard to top Danny Duffy in a bear suit getting ready for the drum part for Phil Collins "In the Air Tonight."
Duffy. In a bear suit. Doing air drums to Phil Collins. Let's go win a WS. https://t.co/t51enMQ6Cg— Steve McCleary (@SteveMcCleary) October 27, 2015
