Kansas City Royals fans want the team to wear ‘powder blue’ uniforms, and have been expressing this opinion through social media for a long time. And the club was listening to the contents and moved to practice.
Kansas City posted a video on its official SNS on the 4th 안전놀이터 (Korean time) with the comment, “We were listening to your voice.”
The video contained texts written by fans on social media, along with Kansas City in the past when they wore powder blue uniforms. And before the opening, it was revealed that they would wear a powder blue uniform.
The powder blue uniform is the uniform worn by Kansas City from 1973 to 1991, with both the top and bottom in sky blue.
The reason why fans want the uniform so much is that it was worn during the World Series championship in 1985, and club legends such as George Brett, Bo Jackson, Amos Otis, and Dan Quisenberry all went through this uniform.
Kansas City also knew this, and recently changed their top to light blue on a special day, but they made fans sad by wearing white pants. However, the voices of the fans were heard once again, and it was confirmed that the powder blue uniform would be worn before the opening.
Kansas City players such as MJ Melendez, Amir Garrett, and Vinnie Pasquantino were also very happy with the powder blue uniform, citing the news.
Kansas City will begin the season on the 31st with an opening match against the Minnesota Twins at its home stadium, Kauffman Stadium.
