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.
