The day the Royals made Kansas City stop was a gift from the baseball gods. Pure blue sky, light breeze, the kind of day you don’t mind walking a mile or two from wherever you parked (side of the highway included) to go stand with hundreds of thousands of friendly strangers … the biggest crowd that Kansas City has seen.
Officials estimated 800,000 people showed up, and maybe that’s high. Nobody can really know. But whatever the number, it was a significant chunk of the 2 million people in the metro area. Schools closed. Medical offices told all non-essential personnel to take a day, and surrounding offices celebrated their hometown team.
