Used to be that Sluggerrr had the only raging mullet in Kauffman Stadiums home dugout. But theres a new man in town with business in the front and party in the back. Manager Trey Hillman brings his bi-level to Kansas City, along with a whole lot of optimism for the youngsters that dominate his lineup. Names like Gordon, Butler and Greinke arent new to any long-suffering Royals fan, but this year theyre actually playing like they deserve our optimism. KC even started the season in first place, and while that likely wont happen again, heres hoping for a little luck of the mullet. Tickets run $9-$36 for regular games or $14 to $44 when somebody good comes to town. Call 800-676-9257.
