Kansas City Baseball Vault – Retro Show with guests Buddy Biancalana, Greg Pryor, and Freddie Patek


With Retro Night coming up this weekend, we dipped into the archives to bring you three interviews with some former Kansas City Royals.

First, we talked with Buddy Biancalana, shortstop for the 1985 World Series championship team. He talked about getting into the zone, using fear as a motivator, and his World Series experience.

Then, we talked with Greg Pryor, also from that 1985 team. He talked about the memorable experience of Game 6 and winning Game 7, his favorite coaches throughout the years, and some wild baseball days he was a part of, like Disco Demolition Night, and the Pine Tar Game.

Finally, we talked with Royals Hall of Famer Freddie Patek. Patek discussed the seasons he enjoyed most, making it as a smaller player, grooming Frank White, and playing tough all the time.

Note: These interviews were recorded in the summer of 2012. Which makes one of Patek’s responses very interesting.

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