The entire crew of The Ballgame was together to discuss or commiserate the state of the current 2013 Royals. But this was a no-grumbling zone for the hour. We spoke with former Royals outfielder Brian McRae about his time growing up in the Royals clubhouse with his father Hal. We also talked to him about his very opinionated thoughts on what to do to fix the current Royals. We ended the show each giving our ideas on how to take the Royals, who went from first to last – back to first again.

Moments before we went on air for our 19th show, we were met with the news that legendary Royals broadcaster Fred White passed away. Fred was a member of the Royals family for over 40 years. We spoke with Royals Hall of Famer, 2 time Cy Young Award Winner and 1985 World Series MVP Bret Sabehagen about Fred, his career in Kansas City and his upcoming appearance on June 20. Bret shared some great stories about 1985, when he was only 21 and his time with co-host Greg Pryor.
We then spoke with Kansas City Star Cartoonist and Royals Blogger Lee Judge about the clubhouse energy with the 2013 Kansas City Royals. He also shared some Fred White stories.

Some days, it’s pretty easy to make it into the studio. Today’s show was one of those days. We spent the hour first talking about dressing up with Brett Thomas who is hosting a “Dress to the Nines” day at Kauffman this Sunday. We then spent the next 30 minutes talking about the most clutch hit in Royals history with the man who hit it, 1985 World Series Game 6 Hero, Dane Iorg spent the episode with us talking about that series, plus his 1982 Championship with the St. Louis Cardinals and how he turned it around to beat those same Cardinals in 1985. Dane and fellow 1985 Champ Greg Pryor caught up on anecdotes and stories. At the end of the show, we were surprised with a call from Hall of Famer George Brett who spent 20 minutes on one of the coolest 3-way calls you’ll ever hear. This is one you’ll want to hear all the way through.

Of course, our resident Champion, Greg Pryor along with Chris Kamler and Jeff Logan welcomed 42 year veteran of professional baseball, former Royals player, manager, broadcaster, scout and now instructional coach, John Wathan. We spoke with “The Duke” about his long career with the Royals in just about every capacity. John shared with us some stories about his career, but also his impressions of this year’s Royals. We then spoke with 1983 World Series Champion Mike Boddicker. Mike was also a pitcher with the Royals in 1991 and 92. Boddicker talked to us about his career, playing with Cal Ripken, Jr. and a once-in-a-lifetime dinner with Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio.

We’ve spent three months talking about baseball here on The Ballgame, but we broke from format on today’s show to talk about what’s been on the minds of all Americans, the twin bombings at the Boston Marathon. Jeff Logan and Chris Kamler spoke with someone who was not only a participant in the marathon, but also a witness to history. Local media blogger and software engineer, Greg Hall of greghallkc.com spoke with us for the hour about what he experienced, what he saw and what the resiliant people of Boston. Greg talked about his time (3:28 and not a minute longer!) and also talked about the role of social media in an unfolding situation. This was a very special show and we thank the Kansas City Baseball Historical Society for letting us tell this story.
