Music News ! San Francisco Bans Lorde From The Radio ! Now why on Earth would you want to ban a song from the airwaves? In the case of Lorde’s “Royals,” it’s because sports are involved. The San Francisco Giants are up against the Kansas City Royals in the World Series, which kicks off on Tuesday night. So naturally, you can’t have any songs about the opposing baseball team on Bay Area radio. Fans asked stations KFOG and KOIT to put the track to bed for about a week — until the seven-game match-up is over (it may be longer if the Royals come out victorious). And before you say, “Hey, Lorde wasn’t singing about Kansas City! That’s no fair!” You’re so, so wrong. The 17-year-old New Zealand native was, in fact, singing about the major-league team. She once told VH1 that she drew inspiration for the song from a National Geographic picture of the Royals’ George Brett. So, basically, don’t invite Lorde to San Fran for a while… Lorde
MLB: Remembering the Kansas City Royals' Fort Myers, FL The Kansas City Royals were a Major League Baseball powerhouse, appearing in the playoffs 7 out of 10 seasons from 1976 to 1985, including one World Series championship and another pennant, led by stars such as third baseman George Brett, pictured here second from left, as he joked with teammates during spring training in 1984 at Terry Park in Fort Myers. The Royals called Terry Park, also known as Park T. Pigott Memorial Stadium, their spring training home from 1969 through 1987.

The Grand Slam: Royals take over first place in AL Central by crushing Tigers again David Brown By David Brown 4 hours ago Big League Stew View gallery . The Cheshire grin on the face of catcher Salvador Perez said a lot: Not only are the Kansas City Royals playing their best baseball right now, but all of the bounces seem to be going their way, too. The Royals won their ninth straight Tuesday night, beating up on the Detroit Tigers 11-4 at Comerica Park to take over first place in the American League Central by a half-game. The Royals, improving to 38-32, haven't seen first place 70 games into the season since 1980. Eighty. The year George Brett hit .390. Disco had just died. Kansas City hasn't made the playoffs since 1985, when it won the World Series. ''A lot of games left, so it really doesn't matter, but to say you're in first place, it feels pretty good,'' designated hitter Billy Butler said. ''Being in first place any time is good — even if it's after the first game.'' Hey, check this out: ...

Yesterday Lorde met up with former Kansas City Royals third baseman, and 'Royals' song inspiration, George Brett.
If only the Kansas City Royals actually played in Kansas. They really coulda played off this act of domestic terror. Kansas Strong shirts, somber moments of silence followed by chants of U.S.A, symbolic 1st pitches, ESPN puff pieces, George Brett with some rousing OUR CITY speech, and last but not least play to give the community a sense of normalcy
Yep, Lorde wrote "Royals" based on a 1976 photo of Kansas City Royals legend George Brett. And no, Royals fans (all three of you), your odds of making Postseason have not enhanced just because a pop star from New Zealand got a signed Jersey.

This Day in Kansas City Royals' History, Sept. 30: • 1990, Kansas City infielders Frank White, playing in his last major league game after spending his entire 18-year career with the Royals, and George Brett establish a new mark when they appear their 1,914th game together, the most by any American League teammates. • 1992, With his fourth hit of the game, a single off Los Angeles' southpaw Tim Fortugno, George Brett collects his 3,000th hit of his career. The Royals' third baseman's celebration of the milestone moment is short-lived when he is picked off and tagged by first baseman Gary Gaetti (who a few years later played for Kansas City) after stepping off the base to savor the accomplishment. • 1998, After the removal of a tumor nine months ago, former Royal reliever Dan Quisenberry dies of brain cancer at the age of 45. In 1983, 'Quiz', known for his outstanding control, became the first closer to record 40 saves, ending the season with 45.
Today's team is the Kansas City Royals. Some great players have donned the baby blue uni's. George Brett is probably the greatest Royal of all times. Bret Saberhagen, Dan Quisenberry, Amos Otis and Willie Wilson were all great Royals. However my all time favorite Royal is Vincent Edward Jackson. Jackson hit some monster shots well over 450 feet and is the only player I have ever seen snap a bat over his knee or head after striking out. The fact that Bo was an all star in two sports is very impressive. My most memorable Bo moment isn't a baseball memory. But rather a Touch down where he drove the loud and brash Brian Bosworth deep into the end zone on a Monday night!. Favorite Royal Vincent Edward "Bo' Jackson

Think you know all about the Kansas City Royals' George Brett's "pine-tar" game? Think again:
Pine Tar: The Untold Story The bat boy tells his version of the pine-tar tale involving George Brett and the Yankees. By DANIEL BARBARISI On Tuesday at Yankee Stadium, George Brett will hold a news conference to talk about the most famous moment in his Hall-of-Fame career: the Pine-Tar Game. Yet absent from that news conference will be a 47-year-old New York cop named Merritt Riley, who feels personally responsible for the pine-tar debacle. "I really believe the Pine-Tar Game would never have happened if I hadn't done what I did," said Riley. Speaking publicly for the first time ever about his role in the Pine-Tar Game—which took place 30 years ago this month—Riley said, "I remember it happening like it was yesterday." On that day—July 24, 1983—Riley was a 17-year-old Yankee Stadium bat boy assigned to serve the visiting Kansas City Royals. His job: When a Royal hit the ball, grab the bat immediately, run it back to the Kansas City dugout and toss it in a rack among the other bats. But in the top ...

Kansas City Royals beat Minnesota Twins 4-1 to end 11-game home skid Kansas City, Mo. (AP) — Jeremy Guthrie lasted six shaky innings and the Kansas City bullpen held off the Minnesota Twins the rest of the way Wednesday night, wrapping up a 4-1 victory that ended the Royals' franchise-record 11-game home losing streak. It had been exactly one month since Kansas City won a game at Kauffman Stadium, a period marked by offensive ineptitude that had resulted in a precipitous slide into last place in the AL Central. It also marked the end for hitting coaches Jack Maloof and Andre David, and the return of George Brett to the dugout. The Hall Of Fame third baseman was appointed interim hitting coach last week, and while the results still haven't been great, the Royals may be finally starting to show a spark. The Twins jumped out to a first-inning lead off Guthrie (6-3), but the right-hander escaped a bases-loaded jam with the help of a nice catch by first baseman Eric Hosmer to prevent any additional damage. T ...
ONE MONTH, ONE "FRICK'IN" MONTH since the Kansas City Royals have won a home game! Mike Moustakas and Eric Hosmer are complete jokes and being coddled by this organization and need to be sent to Omaha or someplace. Also, bringing George Brett on board was only a PR move and not working and will not work out. This once proud organization is an embarrassment to the city of Kansas City, Mo and all of Major League Baseball!
I realize it's only the top of the 4th inning but evidently bringing George Brett on as hitting coach hasn't helped the Kansas City Royals problems!
Interesting thought.Kansas City Royals sends hitting coaches to the minors and brings George Brett to be hitting coach.Maybe this is what the Chicago White Sox,needs to do

Hall Of Fame third basemen George Brett wore 5; Willie Wilson 6; Bo Jackson 16."

Butler leads Royals over Orioles 8-2 BALTIMORE (AP) — Billy Butler had already cleared the most difficult obstacles of hitting for the cycle, including a home run and his first triple since 2009. All he needed was a measly little single in his final two at-bats to become the seventh player in the history of the Kansas City Royals to complete the cycle. Butler fell short, but that was one of very few negatives for the Royals in an 8-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday night. Butler finished with three RBIs and scored three runs, and Alex Gordon homered and had three hits to help Kansas City end the Orioles’ five-game winning streak and take the luster off Manny Machado’s impressive major league debut. Butler homered in a four-run first inning, doubled in the third and tripled in the fifth. Vying to become the first Kansas City player to hit for the cycle since George Brett in 1990, Butler struck out against Matt Lindstrom in the seventh and submariner Darren O’Day in the ninth. “I really ...
