Royals lead MLB in home runs after smashing 6 in Detroit (Video)

The Kansas City Royals tied a team record for HRs in a game last night after belting in 6 during their game against Detroit. Last nights hitting display has the Royals in a tie for the HR lead with Atlanta and Detroit at 8 a piece. The outing also placed them in the top 10 for runs scored.

While the hitting clinic was fun to watch, the Royals also sit atop the leaderboard in several categories a fan would rather not see. The Royals are 3rd in the league in strikeouts at 46. This puts the team batting average at .207 which is 23rd in MLB.

After watching this team over the last several days I will say that the current Royals squad does have a “trust the process” feel to it. Dayton Moore has done it in the past and I’d bet he can do it again. Let’s Go Royals!

Royals will have thousands of virtual fans this season on FOX (Video)

As suspected, FOX Sports announced on Thursday that it will be using virtual fans for the upcoming MLB season. The news was put out earlier today via Twitter.

FOX Sports Vice President Brad Zager had this to say. ”

“We believe that what we’re doing is creating a natural viewing experience, sports is supposed to be an escape and when people have that escape we want it to feel as normal as possible when there’s very little normalcy, like a crowd at a baseball game on a Saturday.

“We’re not looking to fool everyone. We know it is a virtual crowd. But we also know how jarring watching a game in an empty stadium is on TV.”
