Kansas City Baseball Vault: Getting Nerdy About Homers at the K

kcBaseballVaultBanner-1024x409

This week, we kicked things off by talking about the Royals’ trip to Cleveland and Baltimore – a mixed bag for sure.

Jeff and Mike raved about Yordano Ventura‘s outing against the Orioles and his poise and approach in his eight shutout innings on April 25. We also had to lament the close games lost in Cleveland, key AL Central contests.

But the meat of this week’s show was a deeper analysis of Kauffman Stadium and the following question: Are the Royals a team of guys who won’t hit homers at all, or is the stadium the biggest culprit?

By comparing what the Royals have hit over different eras, what other teams hit in the league (in and away from Kauffman), we came to a few conclusions and dug up some interesting facts. Last week, we just skimmed the surface. This week we looked at as much as we could from many different angles.

Also keep your calendar clear for Memorial Day weekend. Our sponsor, Kelly’s Westport Inn, is helping host a block party with their neighbors at McCoy’s on May 25 at 8 p.m. It’s a $5 cover and local band Lost Wax takes the stage at 9:30.

Used to blog about the Royals, now just podcast about them. I used to be a Bob Hamelin fan, too. Oops.
