Sunday afternoon was day to give tribute to the Royals players that gave us so many thrills over the last few years, and boy, was it a day for the feels.

Before the game, there were hugs.

It was a fitting tribute that Fetty Wap’s Trap Queen played every time Hosmer, Moustakas, Cain, and Escobar batted, the song that the team frequently played during the 2015 season as they rallied to a championship.

The crowd gave Eric Hosmer a standing ovation when he came to bat in the first.

And sure enough, Hosmer, who always seems to shine brightest in the spotlight, came through.

Of course, it wasn’t just Hosmer that got a standing ovation.

Fans were sentimental.

In the fifth inning, Yost pulled Hosmer, Moose, Esky, and Cain off the field to thunderous applause.

Thank you Hos. Thank you Moose. Thank you LoCain. Thank you Esky. We don’t know if any of them will be back, but we do know they gave us the most unforgettable era in Royals history. #ForeverRoyal
