Guess Ryan Shealy is over that dreaded flu bug that was making its way through the Royals Spring Training clubhouse. After going long in his first at-bat in Wednesday’s 3-1 Royals victory over San Fran, Shealy entered Thursday’s game for Ross Gload and, in his only at-bat, homered again. This time the solo shot over the wall snapped a 3-3 tie in the bottom of the ninth.
Here are some shots (from team photographer Chris Vleisides) of the team celebrating Shealy’s walk-off homer.
A non-game note…the first batch of the 2008 Royals Media Guides arrived in Kansas City today – and they look great! Like past years, the Media Guide will be available for purchase in Kauffman Stadium once the season begins.
