If you’re sick of not being able to watch baseball, there is a respite on the horizon. Fox Sports Kansas City has you covered this week and next week with some of the most exciting series of games in Royals history. Beginning tonight, Monday the 20th, FSKC will air the 2014 Wild Card, American League Divisional Series, and American League Championship Series in their entirety.
In Royals lore, the Wild Card Game is legendary, as is the epic 2014 World Series. But the ALDS and ALCS sometimes get overlooked because of the total lack of drama: two series, two sweeps, no losses. From the Wild Card Game through the end of the ALCS, the Royals won eight consecutive playoff games, cementing themselves as the proverbial Cinderella Story of the year.
The FSKC broadcast schedule is as follows:

I remember three moments particularly vividly. First, watching Mike Moustakas hitting the go-ahead home run in extra innings in the first game of the ALDS—which was decently past midnight—and hearing someone else in my apartment complex bellow “MOOOOOOOOSE.” Second, driving and hearing Ryan Lefebvre’s call of Billy Butler’s stolen base on the radio. Third, watching the final groundout in the ALCS-clinching game with a bunch of my coworkers at work as we huddled around a monitor, the pretense that anybody was doing any work long since discarded.
The Royals may not be good anymore, and there’s no baseball being played at all right now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t sit back and enjoy the good times. So let’s do it.
