    The Kansas City Royals are a cool professional American baseball team boasting legends George Brett and Bo Jackson in its roster-history.

    You can play with the Royals in the MLB: The Show baseball video-game series.

    The Royals advanced to the World Series 4 times, winning in 1985 and 2015 and losing in 1980 and 2014.

    Recreating magical seasons of the Royals on a video-game platform can exorcise your demons about sports/baseball cynicism and perhaps help you bond with your kids! After all, dads don't want to be bothered while watching baseball on a lazy Friday night, and kids don't want to be bothered while playing a baseball video-game during a Saturday night sleepover with friends.

    When these dads and their video-game loving kids get together to share in the common fun of recreating Royals 'magic' in a virtual-reality 'arena,' something magical potentially happens --- everyone feels better about Jerry Maguire and sports in general.

    After their second World Series title, the Kansas City Royals were immortalized by their fans, fans who love TV, American baseball, and the general fun of watching baseball! You can purchase gorgeous Royals murals/paintings now and keep them as collectibles. I used to collect baseball cards as a kid and own the Bo Jackson Topps Traded rookie-card (which I now keep in a safe locker for secure storage --- sentimental value!).

    Americans love the summertime, and summer means baseball (the MLB games!). Go see a game at a stadium or watch an exciting summer game on TV with your friends/family or by yourself. When you notice your kids playing a baseball video-game such as the lauded MLB: The Show on Sony's PlayStation or Microsoft's Xbox, you might start seeing some nifty graphics and fun gameplay and think about your own love of baseball! You might even decide to play your first video-game (as a 40 or 50 year-old man!). Suddenly, your kids notice you appreciating their toys and playing with them, simply because you share their adoration of baseball(!).

    After the recent [2015] Royals World Series victory, MLB fans are definitely recreating the season-magic on video-game scenarios and many of these fans are actually not kids. Video-games are, after all, an incredible modern 'phenomenon' drawing the attention/interest of quite a few serious computer-geek and sports-critiquing adults! Saturday night is therefore a perfect chance for you to bond with your son who loves playing with the Royals on his PlayStation; you love the Royals, after all, after they won the World Series for the second time. Isn't this the sort of 'American folklore' that inspired hip film-maker Cameron Crowe to make Jerry Maguire (starring Tom Cruise)?

    American psychologists believe video-game play is simultaneously stimulating/creative and stagnating/obsessive. Many kids have become addicted to video-games and parents to Facebook in this modern era of tech-obsession. However, these psychologists also claim that with 'controlled play,' video-game play can stimulate your brain in interesting ways and motivate your mind to think more sharply about hand-eye coordination and general 'gameplay strategy.' Besides, arguing with your dad whether a live Royals game is more exciting than a recreated Royals World Series game on the video-game MLB: The Show is rather...humorous!

    American athletes may not want to confess they enjoy playing video-games and recreating field glories on a PlayStation or Xbox(!). However, we all know kids love video-games and we all know American dads love watching baseball on TV in the summertime. So why not harmonize all this 'social intrigue' and create a stimulating summer bonding experience with your video-game playing kids that just might inject some much-needed spirit into this modern age of free-agency and contract-complaint related professional sports corruption/malaise?

    HAPPY SUMMER!

    Thank you for this excellent thread.I feel sorry for the baseball fans on here who loved playing the game as much as i did growing up who have never attended a royals game in REAL LIFE and have only seen what the stadium looks like on tv.It is quite a site and even fun enough as it is to view the stadium on tv but watching it on tv does not do it justice.till you go and attend a game there in REAL LIFE,you cant appreciate how beautiful that ballpark really is.

    It is breath taking enough as it is with just the scoreboard alone lit up at night but it gets even much better than that. still when you see the beautiful fountains in the outfield lit up at night as well.Its a site like no other. Other than Coors field in where the colorodao rockies play,it is the only stadium in the country that has fountains.Coors field tried to copy off them but they are a very poor imitation.:D

    I was watching an old royals playoff game that i bought off the net where they played the yankees in the 1980 playoffs and jim palmer and al michales were the announcers and even they were saying that Royals stadium is the most beautiful ballpark in the country.:thup::yes_text12:

    The only ballpark that comes close to being as beautiful as it is A T AND T PARK where the Giants play.They got that lovely ocean view to look out at which ie very breath taking as well. Here is WHY Royals stadium is the most beautiful ballpark in the country.

    this was the most special moment for die hard royals fans such as myself.



    It was a travesty of justice when they got rid of those classic powder blue uniforms.:mad: those new ones they have no you posted are a very poor pale imitation.
