RSTN Heads to Omaha

The Kansas City Royals are back in action Friday, launching a three-game set in Cleveland before heading to Boston (gulp) and Detroit (double gulp). However, if you can’t wait for the team’s 6:05 p.m. start to the second half of the season, then switch on RSTN Thursday, July 12 and watch the Omaha Royals battle the Iowa Cubs at 7 p.m. at Rosenblatt Stadium. The game will be carried on all participating cable and satellite partners throughout the Royals television territory. Dave Armstrong and Royals Hall of Famer and eight-time Gold Glove winner Frank White will step in as announcers.

The Triple-A match up is one of two O-Royals game broadcast by RSTN this season with the other on Aug. 2 when Omaha hosts the Las Vegas 51s, the Dodgers Triple-A Affiliate.


What are you gulping about over there? The Royals have been playing stellar against the big teams. I live up here in Red Sox territory and I’m not even sweating. Much.

The Royals have been playing well. But the second half of the season will be a big test for them to see if they will be a contender in the next couple of years. If they play .500 or better for the rest of this season, then they will give CLE and DET a run for their money come next April.

Up here in Maine, I work in a newsroom quite close to the sports department. I’m surrounded by Sox fans. I’m psyched about this series because those babies are skittish about playing the Royals. Late last season, I cleaned up in a number of bets when KC took a series from Boston. I have the news page hanging on my desk. It doesn’t come down until the Sox sweep the Royals in return. That just ain’t gonna happen.
