Despite our focus on German tools, our namesake is based on the wonderful city which we call home: Kansas City. Autumn in KC is marked by the change in fall foliage, cool crisp air, and the world famous American Royal. Postseason baseball can now be added to that list as the Kansas City Royals make their second consecutive appearance in the World Series. Despite a heartbreaking Game 7 bottom of the 9th loss in 2014, the Boys in Blue were resilient over the course of the 2015 regular season securing their spot in The Fall Classic.
Up until last year there had been a 29 year drought in Royals postseason baseball. Instead of Netflix vs. Hulu it was VHS vs. Betamax. The original Nintendo system was introduced in the United States in October 1985. We are glad to see our ball club back in the spotlight.
