Who’s Your Favorite Missouri Baseball Team-Cardinals or Royals?
Here we go again. It's time to slide on the gloves and get ready for a 10-round bout with the baseball fans in the Show Me State.
Every year the fans get geared up for another round of which team is better.
St. Louis is represented in Major League Baseball by the Cardinals, founded in 1882 and playing in the league since 1892. The team won its first World Series in 1926, winning its 11th and most recent in 2011. Last year the Cardinals were still in the playoff hunt until September 29 when the Dodgers beat the Giants to keep the Cards out for a third consecutive year.
The Kansas City Royals, founded in 1969 and based in Kansas City. The Royals compete in the American League (AL) Central division. Since April 10, 1973, the Royals have played at Kauffman Stadium, formerly known as Royals Stadium. The Royals have participated in four World Series, winning in 1985 and 2015, and losing in 1980 and 2014. Last year the Royals suffered their second 100 loss season. The boys in blue finished the season with a record of 58-104. The last time they had more than 100 losses was in 2006.
So new faces are on both teams for the upcoming season. Which team will finish better?
